I can't see that causing any problems, unless it's cracked elsewhere and worse.

You can always get a new part from the junkyard. Plenty of NP231 there.

PS, I forgot about the snap ring pliers but I guess you don't need them now.

One screw down from that chip looks like a crack as well, could be a scratch but from the picture looks like a crack.

As an FYI, it might have been bad luck, but orange RTV that has the copper in it (MSD http://www.permatex.com/documents/ms...lish/81878.pdf) Did not hold up well to synthetic gear oil. It claims to work on differential covers but when I had used it on a manual transmission and transfer case and it leaked out of ever cover I used to seal it with.

Currently looking for:
-Leaf Springs that you want to get rid of.

Pull the oil pump back
out and check the housing on both sides if it's all good, reuse it

I didn't see that second crack earlier. Since it's the oil pump, and not a rotating mass, the only real issue is does it pump oil without leaking. After thinking about it I would probably replace it if there are any other signs of damage that might prevent it from turning inside properly.
