Made a couple of calls to check.

The parts are still available for the pump.

With the supply not available any time soon the best course is

to rebuild it. Order the housing, inner, outer rotor, shim/spacer,

piston and spring.

If the old style (3 m6 bolt gear) is being used as the core then also

order the pick-up tube, washer and lock ring.

The parts are less expensive than a new unit as the price is going up

when inventory is back.

Clean and have fun.

Does this mean that the later (E21, E30) pumps are gone, too?

For a while, that was a cheap way to get an oil pump-

just swap your 2002 pickup onto a later pump...

too bad- one of the things I really liked about the 2002

was that the parts were all available, and none of them separately

(except maybe pistons)

cost more than a smallblock Chebby....

Is it that M10 oil pumps are no longer available? Or just that they're ridiculously expensive? I checked the Autohaus Arizona site--no pumps listed for the E21 or E30 M10, and the 2002 pump is $498! Dang--that's as much as a piston set costs. I paid $75 for an E21 pump about six years ago and just swapped pickups with my old pump.

At least the parts are available...and BTW, can one measure the gear backlash and other critical dimesions on an old pump to determine what needs to be replaced? My old pump was putting out plenty of pressure at 204k miles, I just changed it as part of a general rebuild due to the mileage and price for a new pump.

Thanks for checking Rob! I'd hate to re-use a questionable oil pump on a $$ rebuild project. Will start checking component prices.

One from the '69

... .. .. ... you need clean steady oil pressure supply to run a motor -

unless you have a 2-Stroke!

Yeah, considering that dry- sumping isn't 4x of that, it's highway robbery.

Wouldn't be surprised if the source is still Febi- whose pumps were $150

in 2009.

I am not doubting this logic. Just questioning the price of an oil pump that was used in many applications.

There is no stock in any of the USA warehouses or in Germany.

The part # is still good - just no inventory to go with it.

Jim if you start with a better core to rebuild you should be OK.

Rob is right, rebuild is the only way to go right now.

BMW Classic says that new pumps will be available in Germany about 3-4 weeks from now. Febi is out of the game, M10 pumps are officially end-of-lined (I even asked them, "pretty please?", but they cited very low sales numbers, to the tune of 210 units last year). Meyle will have some E21 pumps in the US pretty soon.

Jim Io might have one in my storage room. If I do, do you want it?
