I did the test of my oil system by installing all the oil lines, oil pump, filling it with some oil and turning an oil pump with a drill. I spotted oil leaking from my pump even before using a drill so my question is:
- what's your opinion about gluing both parts of oil pump together just to keep oil inside?

Correct way is to lap all the surfaces flat and true then use a smear of welseal or similar.
Takes a while but works well.

And , another thing, quoting from the good book
"Examine the mating faces of the crankcase
and oil pump, making sure they are clean"

I remove the studs and check the pump to case fit with engineers blue, you will likely find that the alloy around the studs has pulled up, easy fix with a light countersink,.

Actually Mr Mike found a typo in my email address and I got my file without problems.
Thank you again.
