I'll take a look at our host pelican for the rebuild parts. I do see where the supply tube to the pump has been rubbing on the valve cover at one time but is till intact and has since been relocated. I don't believe it is the pump seal, I have no oil leaks and for the return tube to the oil tank, I can blow through easily enough and pumps are better at blowing than sucking. The drive pin did have some wear nothing unusual. I don't want to go with the TurboWerx pump I bought but may have to if I can't find the two gears and that may not fix the problem as mine looks to be in new condition.
I'll be testing the electric pump tonight to be sure it will keep up. I'm still questioning flow rate to the turbo. Does the new K27 have less back pressure allowing more flow that the pump cannot compensate for? I'll take a look at some of the testing videos on UTube to compare.
Thank you for your input.
