I am assembling a freshly rebuilt stock-spec D16A6 for my autox car.

I'm wondering if its really critical to use a brand new oil pump, or can I use the one I already have on my current A6 with some kind of reconditioning? As far as I know the current oil pump (170,000 miles) is in fine condition.

New complete oil pump assembly is ~$115

New rotors and oil seal for my old one would be ~$35

Any suggestions?

The rotor and seal aren't likely to break, I'd be more worried about the bearing failing.

You don't hear about frequent oil pump failure with these engines, so I'd expect just replacing the seal and cleaning it up would suffice.

Beautiful car btw.

Thanks guys,

I've neverd anything about oil pump failures on D16A6s either. I'll use the Helms and check all the clearances I can.

That's why you use an impact driver. Make the job 10x easier.

Fireant, I have a book that includes an article on Oscar Jackson building an IT spec d16a6. In it, he recomends just checking the used one with factory specs and that's it. You should be good with the old one.:TU:
