Re: A game changer in the flat tappet world ?

Re: Billet sbc oil pump

I have an older non-ST version of the Billet Melling that I got in a good deal. It's a nice pump, even with the lightest spring it had more oil PSI cold/hot than my old stock type pump But I did mod/port it a bit for flow.

Several proceeded to tell me how I'd never get the girt out and maybe it would never be all out But people hone valve guides, cylinder bores and mains every...
