Oil pump rotor, inner!

970 Views 6 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ExclusiveWorkshops
Hi guy can anyone help me with this? So did my timing chain on my r53 but when putting oil pump back on managed to crack the inner oil pump rotor!馃槨 i have a replacement on the way, but on close inspection the inner rotor surface to the crank shaft seems to be sided, one side right angled and the other side has a small angle taken away, does anyone know which side face's the engine? Regards Mark.

a) I wouldn't just change the inner
b) crank side you'd find
c) what torque value have you for the pump to cover? If 18nm it's wrong.

Thanks i have not put it bach together yet, i will get the outer one ordered! Can you just confirm flat or angled side of inner rotor that face's the engine, and what torque for the pump to casing? Regards Mark.

I use 9nm, you should research what you can as this is my number, I doubted the factory number and tried it on an old pump, having pulled threads I worked back from it to arrive at a constant.
Dry joint. Prime the pump. Remember a thin line of sealant across the crank halves seam ;O) (5970iirc) Renew the centre cover bolt or at least apply the same sealer.... if you haven't noticed, it has a seal on it under the head.

Great! Thanks for the help! Regards Mark.
I love R53's If I had one. I would buy a

TVS would probably be better, although a stock charger can handle 280~ anyway
