Just glanced quickly through this thread, and if it has not been mentioned -
MAKE SURE THE PORTS ARE CHAMFERED AND YOU WASH THE CYLINDER IN SOAPY WATER!!!!!!!!!

Probably already mentioned, but just wanted to throw it out there.

Good luck , Jenna

Her oil pump's not acting right. It needs to see some violence to get it back in line.

Hey, Jenna, if I get the G/S running tomorrow maybe I could swing by and we can look at that pump.

Just got home from a camp trip. Played with my friends '74 TS 185, had been sitting for a year, cleaned the carb, flushed the fuel tank, new plug, ringggg a dinggg dingggg. WTF???? Wish that's what mine would have required. Yeah, still working out some bugs, made it through my 3 heat cycle before the carb overflowed. Trying to figure out float levels and pump production. Will kick her over this week.

So...these oil pumps never fail, right? Well, mine just doesn't plain work. It isn't pushing ANY oil out, I'm at a standstill with running it through more heat cycles. Carb is still overflowing and I cannot figure out why...the float is at spec (23mm) not alot of info in the manuals for this year.

So, I hooked the oil pump up to my drill, again, and I got nothin'. Not even a spurt. Took it apart as much as I could, and nothing is blocking the passages, blew air through it, not sure what I'm looking for. So, before I invest in a used pump, what else can I do to get this one running. I am using the drill while I lift the arm halfway, and fully and I got nothin. Very discouraging since I can't fix all the other shit until it runs.

Jenna, I hear a lot of people cut those buggers off and just pre-mix the gas themselves. I don't trust them at all. Never trusted them in Vespas either.

There are people that are stern standing on both sides. If they put it there, it must be for a reason so I'm keeping it as it FUCKING WORKS!!!!!! I am an asshole, I didn't put the drill in reverse as the shaft spins counterclockwise.....dipshit. Pics to prove.

so why couldn't we get it to work when it was on the bike? The bike had to have been turning it in the right direction mounted on the motorcycle and no oil was coming out.

I wouldn't go to premix either. It'll be a big hassle for a road-going bike. Carrying a bottle and a mixer around with you is all fine and good if you've got the bike in the back of your truck but you don't want to deal with that on a street legal bike.

And besides, every four stroke out there has an oil pump and people don't freak out about it. I've certainly never had any problems with the lubrication system on my airhea.....ummm....nevermind

btw, my blown G/S engine will have company on the 'Wall of Shame'. Mike's donating his doohickey-failed KLR engine. Sooooo whatcha gonna do with that TS piston?

Dunno what the inside of this pump looks like. I always pack gear type oil pumps in car engines with vaseline. Otherwise they won't prime themselves.
