    Default Welding..

    Anybody know a good welder who can weld a oil pickup onto a cast oil pump for me. I've called about 10 places so far and nothing. I guess the task of welding a steel pickup onto a cast pump is a tricky one. Anybody recommend a good welder in the south OC area?

    It takes about 15 seconds with a wirefeed.

    Shaun, you entertain me. You started your thread with a question and finished it with your own answer.

    Default Bracket, not welded!!!!

    Have a bracket welded on the pick up. DO NOT weld the pick up into the pump. The heat required may distort the pump body. Have someone weld a bracket that bolts under a couple of oil pump cover bolts......I thought welded in pick ups were loooonnnnggggg gone.......Is this an "out of the box" pump?? Gee, I thought you were trying to not make the same mistakes again????.......Ray

    Talk to Stefs, there instructions say to drill out the pump to 49/64ths and to have the pickup welded. It does have a tab on the pickup.

    Pumps a hi-vol melling, already blue printed it.
