In hindsight, was it worth the $200 for a new oil pump?

What / how loose did the rods feel at the wrist pins before and after replacement?

What is one thing you would have done differently during the rebuild?

thank you for an excellent source of information!
In hindsight, since the new oil pump did not change anything, It wasn't worth it.

As the the wristpins, I disassembled them years earlier, so I have no idea if they felt any different.
