Any VG30 experts out there

Recommended Posts

ive been on this for about 3 weeks trying to help my buddy. VG30 out of a 95 hardbody.. 2wd . issue is we dont think its the stock motor. .There was an A a B and a W series VG. They all had their differences.
The issue we have is that the oil pump was broke when we tried getting the timing gear off the crank.. Order a new pump and the ID of the pump is to small to fit over the drive for the crank. 

Here are some pictures.
I have searched the entire WWW tring to find out where to get this pump and im am stumped. does anyone have any oil pumps laying around that they can take pictures of and measurements .. 
I have tracked down the pump to 94 and 95 pickups and 93 maximas with the DOHC motor but the pump is not available . 

Found one that looked like it was it. ordered it and it was wrong.

Need help here .. Where are my VG guys at

I did find this oem part number,  but discontinued.... 

 

nissan part 15010-75P01

 

One confusing thing was your measurement, seems big... this says they refer to them as either 25 or 32mm....

Not sure how the vg33 oil pump would work.... has that extra tube or something.... even looking up the vg30 quest it shows that tube....

 

Oh and the nissan part number listed the 95 hardbody... so the motor could be original...

 

Hope some of this helps.... 

I was bored.... and I miss my old vg30 pathfinder..... sent a rod through the side of that motor... oops...

That actually is the pump we bought and it's not correct . They sent us the same pump I have pictured . I got with nissan and these ere the pump numbers I found but cant find info on them

15010-12g01 12g02 75p00 75p01 

 

15010-10v01 this is for a 93 maxima dohc but it's supposed to be the correct pump

I am confused... the one I listed from ebay does not look the same to me...

Can you post  a pic of the entire oil pump?

The original from the motor and the one you bought?

The part number you bought?

 

If you look at the pic of the ebay one it is different from what you bought.....

 

This is the listing from rock auto....

This looks like the one you bought...

You can see the difference how close the machined face is to the outer area...

Also from what I'm seeing they vg30 didnt get the larger crank snout till about 95-96... the pump you listed only crosses only up to a 94 pickup....

 

The oem part number I mentioned specifically says 95 , and 32mm crank...

I still believe that itm pump I posted looks correct.....

What was the part number you ordered?

 

As far as find things.... I have wierd ways I search for stuff.... I do it kind of backwards and sometimes I start with the picture... usually if I can find it visually I can reverse search and find some info..... 

 

Although I can't seem to verify that the itm pump I believe to be correct actually fits the 32mm crank....

Well that sucks.....

I hate when they do that....

By the picture it should be the right one....

 

Any future purchase attempt I would definitely email to make sure you get one that fits a 32mm crank snout....

Have you looked into the vg33 oil pumps... 

 They supposedly have the 32 mm crank, but the oil pump is slightly different..

From what I read it seems like the vg33 is a very similar block....

SOOOOO thats what we are doing is using a vg33.. but the way the turbo set up is we cant use the vg33 pump.. thats why we need the stock vg30 pump without the filter housing and so forth .. its a PITA

That makes some sense.....

One of the things I read was .... actually let me just post the info..... but it sounds like they npt tapped a location on the pump and ran a relocation kit for the oil filter.....  is that the part of the vg33 oil pump that's in the way?

Maybe this will help or spawn an idea for you..... 

I would be inclined to try to make the vg33 pump fit and work... the one your searching for seems to be fairly non existent.... then what if he ever need another one.....
