MK3 Spit Oil Pump


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Ive taken off my sump to have a clean up and replace thrust washers , rear oil seal etc.

I noticed the mesh on my oil pump is lock wired on ... is this correct? It looks a bit bodged.

Can anyone tell me if i can buy a new mesh or which oil pump is correct ?  :-/

Yours is an early pump.  They didn't have any gauze.  On those, the gauze was fitted right across the top of the sump bowl so the oil was "pre-strained".

The other is the later type and intended for sumps with a simple open bowl - not sure it would have been original fit for a Mk3 though?
