How to Testing an oil pump

Post by fiatfam » Thu Sep 05, 2019 9:33 pm

I finished building a 2000l engine, and installed the old oil pump. It was working but I would like to test it and after installation pre-pressurize the engine. Does anyone have a way to do this.

Turn the auxillary pulley bolt with electric drill clockwise and you will see oil coming from hole in the valve area.
Be shure the engine clear the auxillary pulley before using the drill.
