Anyone have a good techique for removing a stubborn oil pump???

I've tried tapping it with a soft mallet... tried to rock it back and forth... no luck. I need to resort to more drastic measures, but don't want to go crazy until I see if anyone has any ideas... Heat? Pry? ???

Thanks

dont pry, as that mating surface ahas to be pretty straight...and prying is only going to screw it up as it sits on 2 studs , any prying is going to make it probably more difficult to get off.

i only have experience with unit motors, but id say a few taps and some heat autta do it. maybe soak in some penetrating oil.

Thanks, I'll try a little heat.

BTW, I know you're rebulding yours as well... Did you do any machining yet? Loooking for a place in central Jersey. I've got one place in mind but haven't spoken to them yet. A guy down the street from my brother is apparently one of the biggest Vincent guys around. He recommended it, so I'll give him a shout, but would be nice to check out a few places.

Thanks

Looks like a little thread issue on one of the spark plug holes. Also, one of the cylinder base stud threads in one of the cases looks a little nasty. So far that's what I've seen. I haven't split the cases yet, cuz I'm waiting for my crank pinion puller to show up. I think I'm gonna try to track down a 750 kit. If not, maybe clean up my current cyl., although it doesn't look too bad. Aside from the spark plug hole, the head looks good too. But WTF do I know!

Thanks!
