How to Install the Oil Pump & Screen on a Small Block 302 V8

We are beginning the installation of new parts on the budget build 302 engine. We begin with the new high volume Melling oil pump and Melling oil pump screen. These parts are made in the U.S.A. and are very high quality. The oil pimp comes with a new hardened drive rod and the pump screen comes with a new gasket. You will need to clean and reuse your old bolts for this install. I purchased my parts from a local performance parts store called Gearhead Performance. They are extremely knowledgeable and I like to support local businesses as much as possible. The prices and links below are for your reference only.
