there are 2 m55 pumps 1 with reinforcing ribs (old style )it gives more clearance for bolt ,the non reinforced has a thicker body (new ) ,both pumps carry same part number ,if you know the man at parts counter get him to let you open a few boxes. I have a 77 bbc pump on my sbc with a mileadon pickup and 8 qt pan I had to use a copper gasket that I don't normally use and a metal sleeve didn't trust plastic since I lost a little length in oil pump shaft with gasket, also great display,should help lots of rodders
