Goggle wheel adapters or check eBay. Several companies out there to choose from.

Yes most definitely. Do an oil change and get that diesel out of there.

Sorry but IMHO that was a mistake to do. You could of dropped the pan and removed the timing cover and cleaned them up.

He may be right about cleaning it out. Leaving all the sludge in the fine mesh screen of the oil pump pick up.....................

My worry is not what you did with the screwdriver and vacuum. It is with the diesel fuel (a solvent) which may have loosened sludge from other areas of the engine.

That sludge would be thick and gooey. Just like what you cleaned up in the valve cover and head.

The oil pump pickup has a screen in it that could easily get restricted/plugged. Once this happens oil will have a hard time flowing into the oil pump.

http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_High-Volume-Oil-Pump-Melling_15680021-P_151_R|GRPENGPAMS_1366875530____

At the very least I`d run the engine, keeping on eye on oil pressure and make sure you have flow up through the pushrods into the top end.

Better approach would be to drop the oil pan and clean or replace the oil pump screen.

Your talking about your engines lubrication system here. If the pump cannot pass the oil your bearings are not getting fed.

I doubt you'll need to replace it, but it would be a good idea to just drop the pan and clean everything out real good, just like the valve cover. You have no idea how much crap can end up in the bottom of an oil pan, especially if you run cleaners and solvents thru the engine... I had almost 4 lbs of gunk once! and it was just like road tar!

I am going to disagree with the Ironman on this one.

Your engine has xxx amount of miles on it. You have the pan off to clean everything up. A few more minutes and a little more $$ means you have a new pump. As an added bonus the new pump will come with a new strainer.

You probably could get by with just cleaning the strainer but it is cheap insurance to do it all.

Yeah you have a point. I'll have to agree, a new oil pump can't hurt. They don't burn out very often (which is what I really meant), but you may as well as long as you're under there. It's cheap insurance.
