    Hey fellas

    Does anyone have a line on of these oil pump screens?

    Searched all over but the ones found don't look anything like the one that came out the engine.

    Or can I ise a different model?

    Or does this one seems good enough? (Definitely not liking this option)

    Thanks in advance 20220922_212440.jpg 20220922_212449.jpg

    That one is shot. That big hole isn't going to screen anything out. 235 oil screen (2).jpg

    Check with this Hamber...he has a free oil pump on the "Pay it Forward" site...I

  5. Get some brass flywire and soft solder it to your pick-up. That should keep the flies out of the oil pump at least.

  6. Looks like someone put old aluminum window screen in that one.

    The made in China crap people at the flea market sell some cheap strainers that still use the same screen. If you really want to keep it, maybe you could cut one of those down to fit.

    Given the angle of the tube, is there an alternate part that i could use?
  8. Believe it or not,,,,,that can be repaired .
    The lip of the body that is crimped over,,,,,can be gently lifted up .
    Then remove the steel cross strap .
    Remove the old screen ,,,,,Then use a screen from an old Chevy pickup you might have access to ,,,or use some new steel window screen,,,,,,it’s about the same stuff .
    Then,,,,,reverse,,,,,,install the strap,,,,then crimp the body back down,,,,,no problem to it .

    While you have it apart,,,,clean it really good too .

    The welder in me thinks the best option is get another one, cut and weld it on. That said, judging by what I see in the pictures, if it's out and cleaned, that little bit of screen off the corner is still tight to the raised pressing, leave it alone and it'll be fine.

    They are not hard to repair at all. Open the fold and remove it. That appears to be the stock stainless screen and not something from a screen door. Check McMaster Carr for stainless screen material.
    If you don’t want to do that look in the Moroso site for oil pickups. Cut your screen off after the tube a weld a new one to it. Most of them have that size tube. 3/8” to 1/2” off the pan bottom. I’ve even welded a bracket to rest on the pan bottom.
