Default SBC WVO Pump

Ok well i have been in need of a new pump since my hand crank Sh!t the bed. Well i have been reading alot about the SBC oil pumps being used as a WVO pump. So i decided to do it my self. From Advanced auto parts the SBC High Volume Oil Pump cost $31, I had a $5 off coupon and Military Discount so it cost about $25 after the discounts. I had two 1/2" Black pipe nipples, so i based my plans off of that. I seperated the whole pump to get a look at it. I used the stock suction point, and drilled a hole for the discharge point. I had to block off the stock discharge with JB weld. There is also a Pressure Relief valve in the pump. I did see that some people have blocked it off and i decided to leave it as is for now and see how it works with out if blocked. I read that the relief valve will lift >60psi. So to drill the hole i used a step drill bit till i got the right hole size. then i used a Dremel to expand the hole just enough to get the nipples to bite and sit tight in the hole. after that I filled them with JB weld. Very straight forward and simple to build. I used it with my 1/2" drill to drain a barrel that was at 25F and it did pretty good. I have read that if you put it with an electric motor it will be quiet. and hands free. The 1/2" nipples are the perfect size to put 3/4" hose on. Good thing about it being a gear pump is that it works in both directions and it will draw a suction. Overall i think this was a great idea and will get lots of use.

The hole on the right is the suction and the hole at the left is the relief valve. It wil relieve back to the suction.

The wife is the one that mixed all the JB weld. SO no those are not my hands.

Just Because

3/4" Heater hose seems to work far better than anything. Keeps its round shape and will not flatten like the clear plastic tubing


Pretty nasty oil in there but it worked like a champ

So i have been using this pump on my trip from NY to WA. Works really great. I ended up using a flat head drill attachment to run the pump. plan on running the pump with an electic motor. I have been using the drill pictured above. 1/2" craftsman drill. I use a 800 watt invertor along with an extension cord and this drill and it moves some oil. I think it is about 8GPM with this drill. At a higher rpm it will move more oil. This has been a great pump so far. I used 1/2" nipples and a 3/4" tubing slips right over and stays tight.

What did you end up using for a motor? My SBC pump is modified a bit differently but it works great. Only problem is I have yet to find a motor that will last that doesn't cost a fortune. I ran it off a skill saw for a while. It worked good for a while but eventually burnt up the motor. It was very loud too.

I'm looking for a DC motor that has feet on it, is quiet , light weight & cheap. and will last.

Anyone have any suggestions?
