Thread: Removing oil pump drive gear

  1. Removing oil pump drive gear

    My shovelhead is using a 78 1/2 oil pump. Can anyone explain how to remove the oil pump drive gear lock ring located in the oil pump housing?
    I could also use some assistance on reinstallation of the lock ring.
    I am trying to remove the oil pump housing without removing the cam cover and this lock ring is the only thing in my way.
    Thanks

    Thanks, I have removed the snap ring inside the cam chest that way but I did not think it would work on the lock ring in the pump housing. I will give it a try.
