oil pump pickup tube gasket not available?
« on: June 13, 2013, 11:58:47 AM »
Absolutely no one has a listing for a gasket that goes between the oil pump and the pickup tube for a 2.3.  Not oreillys, not autozone, not rockauto. I need one for my engine to put the pinto pickup tube on my mustang engine. The only way to get it so far is to buy a new oil pump or buy a complete gasket set - which i dont need. Can I just use black silicon sealer or what?

By any chance did you try your local Ford Dealer?

I have not used anything in years, surfaces are machined well. Although you could do as Timmay suggested.   Fred   :)

I got one with a new old pump. You might want to put a new pump in if you do not know how old pump is but do not get a high volume one.

Getting on here late, The Ford Dealer may say its obsolete but can do a nationwide parts search. I needed a "C" clip for a front hub bearing for a 1996 Mercury Villager and none were available in AZ but a dealer in TX had 6.

 The Ford number is D4FZ6626A.  They are available at several dealers in old stock parts. Heck, Green Sales shows 62 in stock.
