Since I'm getting the jones to finish this pig I'm taking a short cut on the new pump for a rear pan project.

I'm going make some mods on a new Melling front sump pump to work on a rear sump.

The Melling pump looks like this out of the box :

The best $$ I could find was 68.00.

I took a junk yard pump and made the mods as a test.

Step 1: Cut off oil bypass port nipple:

Step2: drill and tread the hole ( 3/8" NPT), Dill and tap 1/4" NPT hole 90 degrees to the original hole. Plug 3/8, and screw in 1/4" compression fitting for bypass line.

Step 3: tap pick up hole 1/2" NPT and insert 3" nipple

Oil Pick up next week.

Go ahead and copy it ! fawkers:flipoff2: :flipoff2: :flipoff2:
