Yeah, plenty of oil. Our repairs were successful in reducing the amount of escaping oil.

So if the Pickup pipe goes out downward is there really no way to check it without removing the engine/sump?  Obviously there is some connection between the pickup pipe and the aux housing for the simple reason of supplying oil to the pump.  If I remove the aux housing will I have access to the pickup pipe enough to see if I can draw oil up it?

Is there any other simple gizmos like clips or such in the pump that could go wrong, without horrifying noise, but make the pump non-functional?
