I have a freshly rebuilt U engine that unfortunately has a scavenger pump installed with a chain oiler.
I want to get rid of the chain oiler option without having to mount and time a new scavenger pump. Thought this should be possible by carefully removing the scavenger pump cover and replacing it with a cover without a chain oiler.
Sounded good, but after removing the cover I found the drive gear had a little notch to feed the chain oiler. I am afraid to remove this gear witch lock rings and drive key and was wondering if I can just leave this gear in place and just mount the new cover?
Can I safely do this and/or has anyone ever run a scavenger pump without chain oiler this way?
Thanks in advance for any help.
