• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

I-4 and SV Engine Non-Oiling Rocker Assembly

Yes you did screw up. You should have matched the gaskets that were in there. The gears should only have .003" hosuing clearance.
Unfortunately the only gasket on this pump when I took her apart was a homemade one. And just one, pump body to the 1/16" steel plate. Looked like Stevie Wonder made it in second grade.
And no gasket at all for the steel plate out to the cast iron cover plate. I've never seen an IHC oil pump like this one before----and no Google results with the casting/IH number on it. Hmmmmm.....:lol:
 
This has all been very helpful. But what is the method to dis-assemble the rocker assemble so it can be cleaned and inspected. How are the stands removed and then reinstalled? Thanks

With the bolts removed, use a mallet to knock the towers off of the shaft. If the shaft is real dirty or has old baked on oil, some penetrating oil like WD40 will allow the towers to come off a little more easily.
