1941 Olds oil pump


Recommended Posts

Looking for an answer:

My 1941 Olds oil pump has a hole bored in the end to accept the distributor, the dist. has a tang type connection not a gear. On the end of the oil pump are two slits to receive two pieces each of spring steel that lock in the tang from the dist. The pieces of spring steel have a notch cut in each end that lines up with a grove cut circumferentially on the outside of the pump shaft. I would like to know how to lock the pieces of spring steel to the pump shaft. They may have used wire or a snap ring to lock these two pieces of spring steel in place. My fear is that if their not held in place they would fall out into the oil pan if one were to remove the distributor.
