DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR OIL PUMP IS MADE OF?

 
 
  Shown IPD3400RK major oil pump kit for most 3406 / 3408 / 3412 / C15 engines

Rebuilders are realizing that the quality of both rebuilt oil pumps in the market as well as other aftermarket new oil pumps are not what they expect or can afford to put into their engines. IPD has developed 2 oil pump repair kit options so that you can confidently and competitively build your own pumps.

Other companies may offer these parts but due to the critical nature of oil pumps, our customers have requested IPD’s higher standards in qualify these items.

Example: IPD oil pump shaft and gear assemblies include over 35 quality checks:
 
18 specific to the shafts
15 for the gears
2 for the complete assembly!
   
Compare that to other companies’ procedures!

In addition to the individual parts, IPD now offers the following kits to help you confidently lower your costs and assure that your engine has a quality remanufactured oil pump.
   
Major Repair Kit fits most 3406 / 3408 / 3412 / C15 Part Num: IPD3400RK
(Includes shafts/gears, bushings, plunger, spring)
