Oil pump back together

Mar 19, 2009 update on ae86andkp61's Toyota Corolla GT-S

I started re-assembly of the engine today…I had it stripped down to a shortblock just to check everything out. The oil pump was of the later type, meaning that it was replaced when the previous owner rebuilt the engine a couple years back, so I decided to re-use it. I replaced the oil seal and gaskets, and turned a little shim to bump up the oil pressure a little bit. I made it from steel and you can see it between the stock spring perch and the circlip. More to come soon…
