1962 Lincoln Continental Oil Pump Replacement

Hi Bill,

I purchased a high volume oil pump off you guys and was wondering am I able to drop the oil sump off, or do I have to jack the motor slightly to clear the oil pump pick up. The blog is great Bill keep up the good work.




Greetings Dale -

The motor mounts should be disconnected and the engine carefully lifted a few inches and then a block of 2x4 carefully and safely inserted at the resulting motor mount gap to hold the engine at this height. Any radiator shroud etc. etc. should be loosened to avoid damage. The oil pan and pump should then be serviced with ample clearance.
