  • Oil pump pickup tube
  • Just bought a used short block with the pan off, I think the oil pickup tube has been bent. How should it be re-positioned? Does the cup touch the bottom of the pan? Is it centered over the drain plug? Are there any measurements to set this before installing the pan?

  • It would be best to sit the pan down on the block with the block upside down so that you can determine if the pickup tube cup is centered over the drain hole and almost touching when the plug is installed.
