Sounds like he is correct.

Okay, this is a toughie, because the oil pump is a part of the timing case, and has a test plug and one that you can change the pressure by putting different springs into. this is not a separate unit that you can bolt in, but integrated into the front of the engine. You will need to take the front off of this engine to tend to this pump.
