HELP PLEASE; OIL PUMP IDENTIFICATION REQD.

Postby wardy » Fri Jan 11, 2019 9:57 pm

Hi guys. As in the title really... I've a small box of several oil pumps that are either from a 380 or a 750 ( i've never owned a 550)
none are complete and most have the heads removed; I've had them years.
my problem is .. what's the differences between the 380 pump and the 750 pumps?
they all look the same to me!
i'm going to restore some of them butcan't tell which is which!
cheers
Andy

Hi Andy, if you Google Pink Possum GT750 Oil Pumps this will explain the pumps in detail
;) I don"t know much about the GT380 or the GT550,
Hope this helps ;)
Cheers.

AFAIK i think all the bottoms are the same the tops have different arms to regulate the flow rate
