Default Speedway Oil Pump

Hi All,
Has anyone used the Speedway brand Oil Pumps. If so what oil pressure do you have.
Thanks - Pete

Default Re: Speedway Oil Pump

What pressure is, is dependent on where it goes- that is, what stops it- how tight the clearances are in the engine... I have read about off shore pumps with defects- I would ask about the source of the manufacturer...

I would not use a high volume pump, takes more power to run, churns up the oil, makes heat, stresses parts...

I don't think that a tight engine needs all that much pressure, my fairly fresh 59AB runs 63lb. @ 2-3 K rpm, hot Idle @ 1K rpm is just over 35lb.
Half of that would still be OK, IMO

This is not going to answer your question directly. Speedway likes to have knockoffs of well known products made in Asia and then sell them under their name at prices lower than the well known products. One of many examples: The 9 super 7 knockoff of the Stromberg 97 carburetor. What you probably really want/need is a Melling M19 and test it before you install it. JMO
