Testing Oil Pump

Post by Gobi-Geoff » Fri Sep 30, 2016 2:32 am

Hi Just purchased a M67 1987, I'm just about to replace the pistons and cylinders, just wondering is there an easy way to test the oil pump, forgot to order one and just would like to make sure the oil pump is ok before replacing the pistons etc?

Thanks for the link to the video, that was very useful. I purchased the bike as a project to do with my teenage boys while living in Mongolia, the time it take to get the part is the biggest problem, just don't tell the wife about the next part order until it arrives :)
Thanks for your help.

This is very interesting on a ural, but how would you test the pump on a Dnepr MT ?

You could always take the oil pressure sender out of the block and get an actual pressure gauge to hook to the port and take a reading.
