Good afternoon,

The pump is external in the housing that holds the oil filter. There are 2 gears there that make up the oil pump.

The oil pressure relief valve is in the front cover which will require removal of the front cover.

I attached the procedure below for you for the repair.

How hard? If you have never done one, it will be hard. It is involved. The book time at a shop is 4 to 5 hours plus parts.

Thank you. I am not a mechanic I was able to do the fuel pump myself but this I might be better off at a shop. Solid engine at 220,000 still worth the investment.
