Default Engine Rebuild, replace oil pump?

Hi

I am reassembling rebuilt short block.

Is there a step by step instructions anywhere, I have the service manual, but it does not seem to have any hints etc.

What sealants do you use and where? Permatex aviation on the gaskets, and the "right stuff" on the oil pan? Any other advice please?

Oil pump does not look that old, is there clearances you can check against?
I would like some advice on reusing existing oil pump please..

Thanks

Ashley

Based on what you have typed, you pro ably shouldnt build an engine alone.

Should I go back and reacall the twenty or so motors and transmissions I have rebuilt in the past?

Lol, You asked if you can check clearances on an oil pump. And want step by step instructions to build a B series engine. Because they are different to every other twin cam 4 banger out there....

Default Shows how much you know. Thanks anyway...

1. I have been building engines since 1985.
2. I have never damaged or destroyed any engine I have ever built.

3. Here is a document on checking oil pump clearances. You8 have never heard of doing it is my guess.

4. I do not want step by step instructions, I was looking for step by step Hints, all over this site is step by step how to do this and do that, simple **** with photos. etc. here is an example.

But, I really did get what i expected when i posted, I expected to be treated like and idiot and only got **** rather than help or advice......

There are clearances you can check against, I don't remember them.

I would replace it honestly, I'd hate worrying about it down the line.

I used regular old black RTV and have had no issues

Me personally, I would never rebuild an engine without replacing what could quite possibly be the most important component.

Honestly, there's nothing particularly unusual or interesting about the Mazda B-series engines. They have a block, a head, some parts that spin around, and some parts that bounce up and down. Ideally, they should all do this at the same time. If the spinny parts are moving while the bouncy parts are not (or vise-versa), this means that something is wrong.

I'm not trying to be sarcastic here, there just isn't much to say on the subject. A person with your experience should have no problems at all, especially with a copy of the factory service manual in hand.

The same pump will perform better on the new engine. As the new engine won't leak so many oil trough its tight tolerances.

Do not start to read about exploding oil pumps. If you do, buy a pump from Boundary.
