Zodiac's 1981-up style, oil pumps for Big Twins are Value For Money. Pumps are cast aluminium and than CNC machined to close tolerances. The high-gloss polished finish gives that different look.. Zodiac oil pumps route surplus oil back to the main supply passage rather than the return to eliminate unnecessary filtering and offer the opportunity to upgrade earlier engines to the 1981-up oiling system. This oiling system splits bottom and top end oil supplies, increasing oil pressure to hydraulic lifters and top end. Another simple, optional modification will improve primary chain oiling in 1965 to 1972 models. The oil pump cover is compatible with both OEM steel oil lines as well as conventional neoprene line to insure a simple installation and professional, uncluttered appearance. Zodiac oil pump assemblies come complete with all internal parts assembled, gaskets, drive shaft with keys and snap ring, mounting hardware, check ball and pressure relief valve assemblies.
Note: For maximum flexibility, Zodiac oil pumps provide optional location for the oil supply fitting. Dyna's, late FL's and other models with oil tanks below the transmission should use the stock location. Otherwise, under certain circumstances air could enter the oil pump and interfere with engine lubrication. No provision is made for rear chain oiling. The oil pump for 1936 to 1976 Big Twins is equipped with an adjusting screw to control primary oil metering.
