Throwback Thursday has us time traveling. The oil change pump OP-4
(left) was replaced by the updated version OP-6
(right) several years back. The redesign featured more streamlined, improved switchguard and breaker on the end of the motor. The pump maintained the same convenient internal and external threaded ports and quick flow rate of 3 gallons per minute. As Reverso's best-selling oil change pump in the marine industry, we still receive calls to this day from boat owners that continue using their OP-4 to maintain their engine oil. Here are common questions we get asked:
Are there spare parts available for the OP-4?
Today's impellers (360010 and 360014) are compatible, however the new cover gasket does not fit to OP-4. The cover gasket is no longer available for the OP-4.
I'd rather not buy a new pump. What can I do since the motor on the OP-4 still works fine?
Reverso offers the OP-6 pump head assembly
as a replacement part and can retrofit to the OP-4 motor. The simple procedure only involves 2 screws for replacement. The updated pump head will then allow you to purchase the repair kits and rebuild kits currently sold.
