Given that, I would actually be suprised if it was here already. I would put money in it showing up for most Canadians sometime next week.

No worries yet, it can take several weeks.

As far as gears go, as I said before, everyone back off for a moment, there is nothing wrong with the gears unless you have a 01+ motor, and Travis is addressing the situation.
Just relax...
A good question would be for the MSM, what gears/pump do they use. One might assume with the turbo putting an extra load on the system, it might use the (assumed) upgraded '01 pumps, or it might use the 2000 pump which matches the head... or it might have some third variant.

I guess if someone has one of those motors they could pull it off and check. Sometimes part numbers can be misleading though that would also be worth a looky-loo.

My pump should go out tomorrow. I'd suggest the VVT folks sit tight till he figures out what he's going to do - odds are once he decides to issue VVT gears, you'll have enough time to return your set before the VVT ones are even built.

And maybe this time we'll get bubble wrap. :-P

I got mine today (Vancouver, BC, Canada). Seem to be in ok shape with a couple very minor nicks.

But I am curious whether these will fit in my MSM. I have no intention of installing these anytime soon so here's hoping someone else does...

Mine arrived as well.... quite covered with minor dings, but they should all be OK, just need to file off all the high spots. Looking closely at the dings makes me not worry about the hardness one bit, they are are 100% plastic deformation, no chips at all.

MadMalc,

I'm putting a hold on these until we get a few more reports in on their fit. These should fit the 91 1600's so long as it is the long nose crank version. The shipping & cost of part would be right at 200 U.S.D. to the U.K.

After a near infinite set of unrelated hold ups, the '01 pump should be going out today. Sorry for the delay, but it's 2nd day air, so you should be able to have it measured over the weekend. :-)

Maybe, Truth be told its probably going to the machine shop where they have the infinite dollars of measurement equipment you needed this back when? Next month?

They probably wouldn't get mad if you stole 0.2% of their measurement equipment. Do so, give it to me, and I'll sell some of it on ebay. 0.2% of infinite is all the money I think I need. :-)

Hang onto it till the gears are done, don't want you to need another donor after the fact to test fit in. Feel free to accidentally resurface it. :-P

Just letting you know Travis, that my gears turned up on the 10th. One little minor dint, nothing too major.

Thanks!

Did it get there?? When it does, send me the tracking number off the label, so I can check to see when it gets there. :-P

Abe,

I'm not sure who your asking. I meant to tell you your gears did get here, and they were most professionally wrapped As from tracking number I'm not sure what your asking for?

Can anyone point me to a link showing how to install the gears and what needs checking? Or is this a specialist job?

Cheers,
Rich

The link for the clearances are located here thanks to Abe: AbeFM : photos : Oil Pump Specs 2000- powered by SmugMug

This job is reasonably drop in, pull the oil pump cover, pull old gears out, put new gears in. Then check the clearances, and retighten cover and replace everything that you took off to get the oil pump out. The tough part is getting the oil pump housing out with the motor in the car. I'm going to be working on this once I get my new composite cam gears in, and I have a reason to go in there. I'm going to see if this is possible with the oil pan on. So sometime within the next few weeks I'll have a write up either way.
