Hi

Does anyone know if the Melling pump is worth the 119.99 instead of the Sealed Power for 69.99?

I am building a 312 with a 1957 292 block and ECZ-G heads.

Thanks

Johan

Hi Johan,

I've always purchased my oil pumps from Doug Garifo at Precision Oil Pumps in Clovis, California. Best you'll find at $99.95 and he offers a billet drive for about $18.00.
He's on ebay or contact him directly at www.precisionoilpumps.com

It might be worth knowing where the pumps are actually manufactured. The Sealed Power pistons coming out of India are problematic with the skirts breaking.

I've purchased a pump and billet drive from Doug as well. I've not tested it yet but I like the fact that he blueprints them at what seems to be no extra cost. There is an explanation on what he does on his web site.

Now I am a little confused, I seem to remember that the gyrotor pump introduced in '57 was prefered to the gear style from '56 and before. This was said to be because the '56 style is supposed to induce more vibration through the shaft to the distributor causing more spark scatter. Sounds somewhat plausable although maybe not the most important thing to consider. But I see that Precision Pumps is selling the gear type. So What gives?

The gear type is the only one that is available new. The gerotor pumps can only be had used but are pretty easy to find and rebuild kits are available.

All the original 56 312s I bought back in the 60s had Gerotor pumps, not until I bought a 292 did I notice the difference.

Seems like all the heavy duty 292 truck motors I've pulled apart from about 1959 to 1961 model years had the gerotor type oil pumps.
