Replacing Oil Pump in a '65 Ford 302

Has anybody replaced the oil pump in an early model '65 ford mustang 302. This motor is in my shoe box 51 ford. Is it as simple as dropping the pan, removing the old and installing the new with the two bolts? Thanks again.

Doug

It shouldn"t take much more than you described. It has been 5 or so years sience I did a 302 but I don't remember and detailed specifics other than remove pan, remove oil pump, replace pump, replace pan.

289-302 is the same,however before you pull it bring it up to #1 TDC . Then when you lower the old oil pump the driveshaft will come with it,note how it was installed you will see a clip.Always install a new pump shaft with the pump they are a SBF weak link,part number is a Melling 68-S about $10 at Autozone.The reason I am telling you to remove it with the shaft is it will be easier to line up the pump driveshaft to the distributor.

Hey JeffB, thanks for the heads up with the inside info about the shaft and the TDC alignment. If you ever get to Cruisin The Coast in October on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, (coming up in two weeks) get in touch. Sweet looking 302 in your pictures, love the Merc. Later.
