Thanks for the info I will look into job lot , van pelt, for Pistons.
I am also looking for another part which I am not sure of the name of it.
I believe it to be part of the 9415 assembly. It goes under the fuel pump and the fuel pump push rod runs inside of it. Here are a few pics.





Does anyone know where I can find one of these?

Drop it in some muratic acid/water solution to clean it up. Follow directions and DON'T DO IT INDOORS since the vapors are corrosive. It may come out useable.

Or use a non-corrosive chelating rust remover such as: http://www.theruststore.com/Evapo-Ru...FcWUfgodORwAeg

I'd still like to know a source for the elusive "orange juice can", as I need one and suspect that they help avoid heat issues with the fuel pump.

Anyone know a source?

I would call it the fuel pump stand oil baffle, but I can not find a separate listing for it in the Green Book, it appears to be part of the fuel pump adapter assembly.

I've soaked it in vinegar for over a month and it cleaned it up well but I can see now that it has little holes all around it , does anyone have a source for these or does anyone have some good used ones available?

For some reason, when disassembling early engines I seldom run across these tubes, And I've never used them, not sure just what they do, probably keep the firewall clean.

It's just an oil baffle isn't Ron? Like you say, to help keep the oil in the engine and off the firewall.

If there are just a few little holes, just weld em up. It's not a hyper critical piece. You ought to be able to find a barner willing to send you one, they should be fairly common, as all motors had them from the factory (ok, not the early ones).

I'm going to be using the oil pump that came out of the engine. I've been soaking it in kerosene for now. Trying to get this nut out but it is very tight. How much force should I use. .?

That's a 50# pump, 46-48, it has straight cut teeth gears , not heilcol gears like the 80# 8BA engines, I use the 8BA pump in all my engines, it's shorter so have to use the 8BA truck oil pick up tube. Walt

The oil sending unit doesnt care about the motor as long as instrument/sender match all is fine.
Oilpressure is more about what you need if you have raised the power you can raise the oilpressure if all stock you can leave it as is.
