ADJ OIL PRESSURE REGULATOR
Anyone sell this in a kit form?


T/A performance. Its a Buick part and the bolt is a different size so I transfer the adjuster to an AMC bolt by drilling the same size hole and using an AMC spring
Is there a link to the parts used? Thanks




Here's the link you were asking about

http://www.taperformance.com/proddetail.asp?prod=TA%5F1502

looks like they cost about $20

I was wondering, cause T/A Performance sells oil pump gears for Buicks, if the Buick gears are a bit larger than AMC gears, and if so, could the oil pump housing on an AMC timing cover be bored to fit these larger gears, thus making all those used housing with grooves in the oil pump bores, much more re-useable?

The problem would probably be the center to center dimensions for the gears? I would guess that larger diameter gears would dictate farther spacing?

AMC Oil Pump Gears are already Longer and deliver more Volume than Buick Oil Pump Gears.

Yeah, I was kinda excited at first, but of course larger gear diameter means different shaft spacing, should thought of that myself. Too much wishful thinking....
