    New Melling High Volume Oilpump for us.

    This has been advertised, however apparently is not quite available yet from Melling. It's nice to see some companies realizing we DO exist.

    I'm having a hard time resizing this to be small enough to post. Let me know if you would like a bigger image e-mailed to you.

    Thanks andy...

    It is good to see a good oil pump maiking itself available. I know when other guys would build up huge V-8's a bigger oil pan (with baffles to keep the oil from sloshing around during big acceleration/braking or handling) and a high volume (not to be confused with high pressure) oil pump would always be good for high HP levels, in that it allows the oil get to where it is needed fast and in larger volumes. It also improved reliability too.

    It will be interesting to see if this pump is like the 94-95 pump (8 toothed gears) or is just the 89-93 pump for the SC which had only 7 teeth per gear. Lets hope the modeled the later model version. Again the M137 pump they had was specifically NOT for the SC application.

    In the picture it appears to be 8 teeth (I think?). Where was this advertised? It's unusual to see any print ads referring specifically to the SC.

    Any idea on the pricing? Will they consider a group buy? ;-) High likelyhood that I'll have to replace my oil pump due to contamination.

    I called Melling about the M137HV Pump. It is NOT going to be made appareantly BUT they make a M246 pump which is a 8 toothed gear pump 1.258" in length with a larger "oil pocket" that can be used and is available NOW. My info comes from Cal in the Tech. Department. I specifically asked about its use on the SC and he said we are good to go. Also confirmed the M137 pump is NOT recommended. He could not provide pricing but said we could get that via any Melling Distributor/Seller.

    Lovely, Someone finally advertises a product for us, and it seems to be a phantom.

    By the way that ad came from a trade magazine that is sent out to autoparts stores, called "Counterman", April 2003 issue.

    I'd rather shim the spring and run high pressure along with a pump rebuild kit(comes with new valve, spring,plug, gears etc)

    To each his/her own but the name of the game is volume not pressure. Anything that increases that (volume) is a good thing in my book and I will buy.

    its robs some power and might pump most of the oil up top which can leave low oil around hard manuevers, and is usually good for larger clearances, I would use it for sure on a race clearanced engine, not really needed on the street. I wonder though if 94/95s have less rod bearing problems from extra oil?

    Red something today in the May Mustang and Fast Fords about how to gain horsepower from reducing the parasitic loss from the oil pump. Didn't buy the mag though. If anyone did and wants to advise, that would be cool.

    My 2 cents

    I corresponded with Paul Hauglie of Melling yesterday regarding the ad (sent him a copy of the pic above) and was told the following info:
    Yes we will be offering this pump, however, the part number is still to be determined, as well as the release date.
    I asked "Can you confirm that this piece will have an 8 tooth gear? My interest is in it being a replacement for the 94-95 SC pump which differed from the 89-93 style unit." and the reply was:
    Yes this piece will have an 8 tooth gear for your application.
    I will be contacting him again and inquiring about the part Duffy posted as well as any proposed differences between that unit and the 137HV. As soon as this is sorted out it will become a stocking item for BTM.

    Paul
