Hi guys,

I renewed my original 68 oilpump of my 302/2V today. That change made such a huge difference that I have to write it down for you. The engine runs much smoother, sounds healthier, reacts more direct and has more power.

Now you will ask how comes ? Well, the only reason I could think of is that the hydros were supplied poorly by my old oilpump before, so I had less compression, less power, a chattering engine and a lousy idle. Any other idea ?!

If you still run the original oilpump, go for a new one.

Three days and around 100mls later I am still surprised what difference a new oilpump makes.
I have a very powerfull, solid idle, too.

:beer: Whooaa there big fella - be sure to keep them front tires on the ground now!! ;>0 So what made you decide to change the pump anyway? Are you sure didn't accidently fix a bad plug wire or vacuum line while you were working on it..? (maybe your perspective changed after the beers you had while changing it!! LOL )
