Tick of Death

Does driving with this tick hurt anything?

New tensioners are never a bad idea. The water pump is up to you, it can be replaced with the engine in the car without having to remove the timing covers.
Finally, the ticking doesn't really hurt anything. Yes, it's less than ideal, and it's hella annoying, but it doesn't really hurt anything.

After doing this stuff w/engine out, NOW I'm comfortable doing it with the engine in, but not before doing it that first time.

He inserted a piece of copper tubing in the suck hole leaving just enough lip to keep the gasket from sucking in.

Hope pictures help along with a few more details. Pete used a 1/2" drill to enlarge suck hole. The length of copper tubing is approx. 5/16ths. He says very important to keep top of copper tubing flush with oil pump face. You can see in the picture of the gasket, which we removed from this pump, the suck side gasket is pretty messed up. The lip of the copper tubing should keep the oil pump from sucking in the poor mouses ear:grin:
