Oil Pump Removal


1.Set the No. 1 piston at Top Dead Center (TDC).

2.Remove the oil pan.

3.Remove the oil pump chain tensioner.

 

4.To hold the rear balancer shaft, insert a pin driver into the hole in the rear balancer shaft, through the maintenance hole on the lower balancer shaft holder.

 

5.Loosen the oil pump sprocket mounting bolt.

6.Remove the oil pump sprocket (A), then remove the oil pump (B).

 

Oil Pump Inspection


1.Remove the pump housing.

 

2.Check the inner-to-outer rotor radial clearance between the inner rotor (A) and outer rotor (B). If the inner-to-outer rotor radial clearance exceeds the service limit, replace the oil pump.

Inner Rotor-to-Outer Rotor Radial Clearance 
Standard (New): 0.02-0.16 mm (0.001-0.006 in.) 
Service Limit: 0.20 mm (0.008 in.) 

 

3.Check the housing-to-rotor axial clearance between the rotor (A) and pump housing (B). If the housing-to-rotor axial clearance exceeds the service limit, replace the oil pump.

Housing-to-Rotor Axial Clearance 
Standard (New): 0.035-0.070 mm
(0.0014-0.0028 in.)
 
Service Limit: 0.12 mm (0.005 in.) 

 

4.Check the housing-to-outer rotor radial clearance between the outer rotor (A) and pump housing (B). If the housing-to-outer rotor radial clearance exceeds the service limit, replace the oil pump.

Housing-to-Outer Rotor Radial Clearance 
Standard (New): 0.15-0.21 mm (0.006-0.008 in.) 
Service Limit: 0.23 mm (0.009 in.) 

 

5.Inspect both rotors and the pump housing for scoring or other damage. Replace parts if necessary.

Balancer Shaft Inspection


1.Seat the balancer shaft by pushing it away from the oil pump sprocket end of the oil pump.

2.Zero the dial indicator against the end of the balancer shaft, then push the balancer shaft back and forth and read the end play.

Balancer Shaft End Play 
Front Balancer Shaft: 
Standard (New): 0.070-0.135 mm
(0.0028-0.0053 in.)
 
Service Limit: 0.15 mm (0.006 in.) 
Rear Balancer Shaft: 
Standard (New): 0.070-0.135 mm
(0.0028-0.0053 in.)
 
Service Limit: 0.15 mm (0.006 in.) 

 

3.Remove the baffle plate (A) and upper balancer shaft holder (B), then remove the front balancer shaft (C) and rear balancer shaft (D).

 

4.Measure the inner diameter of the No. 1 bearing for the front balancer shaft hole and the rear balancer shaft hole.

Bearing Inner Diameter 
Front: 
Standard (New): 20.000-20.020 mm
(0.7874-0.7882 in.)
 
Service Limit: 20.03 mm (0.789 in.) 
Rear: 
Standard (New): 24.000-24.020 mm
(0.9449-0.9457 in.)
 
Service Limit: 24.03 mm (0.946 in.) 

Front: 

Rear: 

5.Measure the diameters of the No. 1 journals on the front balancer shaft and rear balancer shaft.

Journal Diameter 
Front: 
Standard (New): 19.938-19.950 mm
(0.7850-0.7854 in.)
 
Service Limit: 19.92 mm (0.784 in.) 
Rear: 
Standard (New): 23.938-23.950 mm
(0.9424-0.9429 in.)
 
Service Limit: 23.92 mm (0.942 in.) 

Front: 

Rear: 

6.Clean each balancer shaft No. 2 journals and bearings half with a clean shop towel.

7.Place one strip of plastigage across each journal.

8.Reinstall the bearings and upper balancer shaft holder, the torque the bolts.

NOTE: Do not rotate the balancer shaft during inspection.

9.Remove the upper balancer shaft holder and bearings again, and measure the widest part of the plastigage.
If the balancer shaft No. 2 journal oil clearance is out-of-tolerance, install the new bearings, and recheck. If it is still out-of-tolerance; replace the balancer shafts.

No. 2 Journal Oil Clearance 
Standard (New): 0.060-0.120 mm
(0.0024-0.0047 in.)
 
Service Limit: 0.15 mm (0.006 in.) 

 

10.Align the punch mark on the rear balancer shaft with the center of the two punch marks on the front balancer shaft, then install the balancer shafts on the lower balancer shaft holder.

 

11.Apply new engine oil to the threads of the 8 mm bolts (A).

 

12.Install the upper balancer shaft holder (B) and baffle plate (C).

13.Install the pump housing.

 

Oil Pump Installation


1.Check the No. 1 piston at TDC.

2.Align the dowel pin (A) on the rear balancer shaft with the mark (B) on the oil pump.

 

3.To hold the rear balancer shaft, insert a pin driver into the hole in the rear balancer shaft, through the maintenance hole on the lower balancer shaft holder.

 

4.Apply new engine oil to the threads of the oil pump sprocket mounting bolt (A).

 

5.Loosely install the oil pump (B), then install the oil pump sprocket (C).

6.Remove the pin driver (D).

7.Tighten the oil pump mounting bolts.

8.Squeeze the new oil pump chain tensioner (A), then install the set clip (B) on it as shown.

NOTE: The set clip is supplied with the oil pump chain tensioner.

 

9.Install the oil pump chain tensioner.

 

10.Remove the set clip from the oil pump chain tensioner.

 

11.Install the oil pan.
