Soo sorry for the late response Rudel, lot of family members visiting this year for the holidays, anyways I also bought the oil pump with the billet gears, but Tom ported the oil pump on the stroker motor I bought from him & I switched the billet gears from the C_F_M pump housing to the ported one. I test fitted the small gear on the crank when I had it apart & the harder I pushed it on the harder it became to remove, even with oil on the metal. I'm worried when I'm ready to install the pump I might bind it up.
Think I'll try polishing it a little and/or hitting it with some emory cloth next. Installing the Massive Zetec head w/installed crower stg.III cams all lashed up on that stroker motor was the most fun I'd had in years
