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
Light, nimble, no tunning issues, cheap to maintain, higher level of driving skills of street driving fun. All without having to rely on factory turbo, AWD, dime a dozen, thristy, bought not built, fun.
