I'm sure a few of you have been here before. You can't figure out why the car won't start so you check your connections...nothing. You then go into the distributor to check your point gap, you grab the rotor to remove it and...the rotor turns in your hand! It's not supposed to be able to do that. So you remove the distributor and find that the shaft which drives the distributor is turning freely down inside its little recess. Oh joy. Just what I need, another project. Here's my question: What's the easiest way to remove the oil pump on a 1969 280 SEL and are there any tips anyone can offer? I'm thinking of welding the two pieces back together since this oil pump has gobs of pressure and the weld will probably be stronger than the original joint. Any thoughts on that too? Thanks in advance.
