Oil Pump Fit Question

6 posts / 660 viewsLast Reply

Recommended Posts

There is an oil pump on ebay that is used but barely, looks to be in good condition. It is listed as fitting a 1.6, 1.8, 2.0 enginges. I am in the process of gathering all the parts to do a rebuild on a 1984 M10 going into a 318i and understand oil pumps are hard to come by. Would these pumps fit universally (i.e. would it fit my engine)?

Also, how big a risk would I be taking on a used oil pump?

Thanks.

I wouldn't pay more than $25 for a used pump- they tend to be one of the

first things in an engine to get chewed up, since they pump unfiltered

oil...

There are specs in the BMW shop manual for the various clearances inside the oil pump--and if something is worn, the internal drive gears that actually pump the oil are available as spare parts from BMW--much cheaper than a whole pump. New pumps are now north of $500...

The original pump on my 203k engine was still well within specs and pumped a steady 60 psi at highway speeds when I pulled the engine for a rebuild (not due to oil pump failure!)
