Thread: Correct oil pump control arm position for 1931 VL oil at idle question

  1. Correct oil pump control arm position for 1931 VL oil at idle question

    When installing control cable to oil pump volume arm with throttle closed at idle position, am I correct that the control arm on oil pump should be turned all the way clockwise which is toward rear of bike. Reason I am asking is I have been told by several to set throttle at full throttle and oil pump control arm at highest volume of oil or all the way counter clockwise prior to attaching control cable to pump arm. I cannot find this info in the RidersHandbook for 1930-33 pumps. The Riders Handbook does address setup for later 1934-36 oil pump and says to attach control cable at furthest open position to oil pump arm at high volume position which would be oil pump arm turned all the way counter clockwise. The photo, if it comes thru, shows the way I have pump set with gas throttle off and oil pump arm turned all the way clockwise. Thanks for any help.
