It suppose to be a solution for good pumps still not making enough pressure during a hot day on hot engine idling under traffic lights smile

Is spending money on good equipment a good investment?
In a word YES, a SRM pump costs £300 how much does repair after oil pump failure cost?

Never having had an oil pump 'fail' or in fact never knowing anyone having an oil pump 'fail' i wouldn't know.
I've known a few blokes who have ridden around with pumps that were not much good, flickering oil lights etc, but after rebuilding them they were ok.
If spending loadsa money on good equipment is such a great idea, what are we all doing riding these old pieces of garbage?
Surely we should all be driving Bentley's or Bugatti's.

Im interested as to why the hated for the SRM pump? (somethings like the OPRV, are something I would avoid after knowing so far of 3 that have stuck) but I don't beleive they make the pumps them selves. mounting the pump properly, and to correct torque setting (7ft/lb and as this isn't a lot, I locktite my screws in position) with a well fitting gasket (most dont fit correctly) I have had no trouble what so ever with my SRM oil pump, neither has anyone else that I know of.

Never had an SRM pump so cannot comment, but they had supplied 2 incorrect parts in the only 2 orders I have placed on them. Brake spindles missing the greasing holes and spokes with the wrong gauge. So not going to bother ordering again, also sort of weird for them to recommend not to fit a filter in the return line, where do they get the logic for that from.

Changing from the 3:1 to 2:1 ratio would be expensive unless you can find stock gears that can be modified. Worm gears are not easy to make without a corn cobb hob that rotates the gear with the cutter. Spur gears can be made by a mill or broaching which is much cheaper.
There are not a lot of viable design alternatives to the stock setup due to space and mounting.
I had previously proposed making a new pump using gerotors out of a Suzuki, easy to get and far cheaper than having custom gears made. Off the shelf spur gears can be bought and modified but with enough volume (not in the 1000's) the price comes down to where the blanks can be made and the teeth broached for less.

The interest petered out so I did not go further.

No hatred for the SRM pump from me Allan, just questioning the need for it in a lot of cases.
All i am saying is that a well built and well fitted standard unit is fine. If an SRM pump is subjected to over tightening or being rebuilt with hermatite etc it would suffer similar faults as the standard unit.
The idea David Madigan came up with is a better way forward, although i think it would need a better relief valve setup
especially if used on an end fed engine. I would think he would have to make at least 20 off batches to get around the SRM price.

I would think an end feed engine wouldn't be as critical on oil pressure? All the oil going to rod bearings.

I think DMadigan's gerotor pump is an excellent design and I'm sure there would be be plenty of interest. Dave, are you planning on making a batch anytime?

There would be lots of interest until wallet time.
It amazes me that people will spend thousands on paint and chrome but become tight as a fishes arse when it comes to spending money on engine components

We all know that however it requires logical thinking.
We also know there is a better chance of being struck by lightning while crossing the road pushing our broken down motorcycle than winning a lottery
However most will happily fork out for a lottery ticker because it MIGHT happen to me but won't pay for the pump because it WON'T happen to me, till it does.

As I have regularly mentioned in the 30 years I have been involved with the BSa club almost no one has asked "Who makes the best or where can I get the best or eve is there a better quality"
99.9999999999999999999999999 % of the enquireies I have gotten was " Is there a Cheaper"

And if you want a confirmation then shearch this forum for the words "Better quality" &" Cheaper"
The fromer might bring up a few dozen threads and the latter will be hundreds of pages.

Rotors are about $30 each, stock spur gears are $15 and $20. Need to remachine the gears and make the body and shaft. A few alignment pins and mounting screws. Can be done for a lot less than 300GBP. Would need some testing of course.
