HPOP

Hey guys does anyone out there have a write up on changing the oil in the HPOP system? Also what's all involved in a rebuild of one of theses is it difficult? Does anyone sell a rebuild kit? Lastly who sells a good reman stock HPOP looking for options here and what way to go. Any input is appreciated.

Thanks,

Evan

I just installed a T500 from terminator engineering. It's a reman pump with upgrades to flow quite a bit more. I installed mine yesterday by myself. It took me about 6 hours just because it was my first time and I didn't want to screw anything up. I also followed the adrenaline install from dieselsite and fuel bowl removal from dieselorings. It's pretty straight forward as long as your not in a hurry. It's kind of a pain laying up on the the grill all day. I wish I had a creeper to lay on over the hood bit oh well I'm still young. There are some tips in my thread "waiting on T500" that should help a little.

It is definitely worth upgrading to something better than stock to run splits. Especially with a chip. My truck pulls a lot harder all the way to 90 when I shut it down. It had plenty left to go. It is the second best upgrade besides the chip so far.

As far as writeup there isn't a specific one I could find but the one from dieselsite.com worked well.

Pull the plug or the oil sensor on to of the hpop res then use a vacumm brake bleed tool to suck out the oil then you can refill the hpop res or just crank the engine it will fil it back up.
You can get a cheepo brake bleed tool from harbor freight if you do not have one.

who cares, as soon as you start it fresh oil is in there from the lpop anyways. Just fill it up .5 inch from the hole.

You can't overfill it there is a drain like an inch from the top that just goes back to the oil pan so just get as much as you can like 3/4 quart. That's just if you replace your hpop. Like said above you don't need to change it like an oil change it cycles like the rest of the oil when started.

That oil does not need to be changed. I have done it once, until I realized that the oil will get cycled through the HPOP. Someone had posted a pic of our oil supply, and there have been previous discussions on changing the oil. Some people swear by it others don't...I happen to be impartial but don't find it necessary as the truck will eventually do it itself.

Anyone ever rebuilt a HPOP themselves? If so how hard was it and what all did it involve? Is it just new O-rings?
