before i start, here's my disclaimer: please excuse my overly technical language. ok, so i picked up a new oil pump and went to install it tonite. it came in two pieces - the body of the pump and the screen/funnel/tube section as a second part. so i try to install the tube into the body of the pump, but it seems like it's a force fit application. i oiled it a bit and gave it hell, but all i got was about 1/8" of 'insertion'. so i wonder what to do. the only thing i can think to do is put the screen/funnel/tube section in a ziplock freezer bag and stick it in the freezer over nite or something, and then put the body of the pump in the oven for a little time (suggestions about time would be appreciated). it looks like, however, that there is a small insulated wire in the one side and i wonder if it should be going into the oven. thanks for your help!
