Rebuilding my engine i mount what is supposed to be a freshly rebuild oil pump.

When mounted I decided to spin it using my cordless drill.
I spinned for 4 minutes at 1300 rpm without the it being able to build up pressure.

is the 1300 rpm to little ? I guess that it only corresponds to 650 engine rpm.

After this I put the pump in a vice and tried to measure the vacum with a vacuum gauge on a rubber flange.

At 1300 rpm it only produced 10 mbar of vacuum.

Is there a trio to start up a rebuild pump or could there be something wrong with it?

Problem Solved.

I mounted the distributor and the oil pressure came immediately.
So now I learned it - No distributor-> no oil pressure :-(

I will go and mop up the oil now.
