    Default What kind/brand oil pump to use?

    Want to build blown pump gas 496 bbc about 700hp. What kind/brand of oil pump is reliable or have you had success using? Heard there is a problem with newer M77HV because material was removed for clearance on genV or VI engines??

    These days, I would use a billet pump, Moroso or Titan. I have 2 Titan's for sale cheap at 400.00 shipped. The motors they were meant for are now drysumped.

    I agree Steve. I learned awhile ago that the blood pump of you bazillion dollar engine is no place to go cheap.

    But if I was going to run a iron pump, this would be it. In my opinion, ALL other iron pumps are junk, including the Mellings Select and the System 1 which is really nothing more than a Mellings HV77 with a modified cap and relief.
    Notice anything different around the bolt mount boss on this Milodon? Think they did that for no reason?






    Then look where this pump broke and thing about why that pump is built that way. Seen more than one Mellings, Moroso, and old part #Milodon break in the same place. All basically the same castings with the same weak spot. All of them pump oil. Aside from billet pumps, anybody ever see some huge difference from one pump to another that makes you say "oh yeah this pump is the shit." They are all basically the same crap. To me, I look for the strongest casting I can find.

    Just fine on the trailer.LOL

    I have used the System One cast pump as well as the Mellings select and liked both of them. I liked them since they provided the volume I needed (which really was not much) and the pressure what right where I wanted it. There are a number of other pumps that will work, but those are the two I have used recently in flywheel forward boats. Having seen the Milodon that Bob has shown, I might just go with it.

    They don't wags, and that is the single biggest reason for sticking with an iron pump. I would still go with the obviously strongest pump and deal with the "pumping" with my own blueprint. They all use the same gears, same size etc. I doubt the Milodon is a POS. The broken pump I posted is a older Miliodon, and it was spot on out of the box.

    But is is possible to run a billet aluminum pump with the flywheel foward. Not quite as strong as a Mellings, Moroso billet or Titan. But stronger than a "standard" iron pump. Personally, I think I would perfer the new Milodon over a aluminum version of the design. 370.00 VS 50.00 is a tough pill to swallow, and I think the new Milodon is at least as strong or stronger than the older Mellings. Don't remember to many of those breaking
