04 6.0 low pressure oil pump

I'm a tech and I have a 2004 6.0 no start 120k no codes
I traced it down to the lpop. I pull the cover off the lpop no oil is being pulled through picktube. no oil in pump. I found the regulator stuck open . this would cause it to not pull oil at all right? or would it still pull some oil ? gears look ok! minimal scarring. Also I pulled the regulator but only spring came out (spring shot out) orifice is still stuck in front cover afraid of scarring it up with a pick any ideas on safely removing said stuck regulator?
Thanks

From what I can tell, a stuck regulator can cause the oil loss, once fixed, it looks like you'll need to prime the pump as well.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

I thought it might break the suction its getting a cover& gear kit but I need it to bust off on what I got so I can make sure it doesn't have other problems like a hpop out or rod knock

Unfortunately, I'm not as familiar with the modern diesels, I'm hoping someone else will pipe in with a little more experience.

Have replaced regulators on the 6.0. Sometimes just a bad one. Other times debris will cause it. Will need to see if something went through the pump. Usually if something did it turns out to be a needle bearing out of a lifter that's coming apart.
