Question 300 I-6 Oil Pump Info needed.......

A friend of mine has a '93 F-150 with the fuel injected inline six, and his oil pump is shot.
My question is, will the oil pump off of an '85 carbuerated inline six fit?
Or did they change the oil pump that was used over the years?

as far as i know the oil pump stayed the same(mounting wise) they might have changed shape but i think that is it.

That would be awesome if they are the same, because I have the '85 F-150 2wd with a broken inline six. (broken connecting rod, timing chain, and missing distibutor; some one stole the distibutor.)
And I have been trying to part it out; well, the few salvageable parts there are anyways.
The body is very rusty, and there is no glass left in the cab;(vandalism) but the rear axle, and 4spd manual transmission are good.

Thanks for the info, and I'll let you know if it works!

Are you talking about putting a used pump in?

I would just buy a replacement new one from a parts store. This is from the O'reilly auto parts store website.

Normally, I wouldn't even consider reusing an oil pump, however, the one that is on the '85 only ran for 2 hours before the connecting rod gave out.
The engine was in really bad shape before the oil pump was put in, so I know that it was not at fault.
The rod had been knocking loudly for awhile, so it was only a matter of time.
Basically the pump is still new though, so I trust it enough to try and reuse it.
You have a very good point though, and thank you for trying to help.

Oh ok. Just throwing the new one out there. Would not want someone to damage an engine for the low cost of a new one.
