Re: lubrication system

Any chance someone could submit a foto showing me exactly where the oil pump is on a 1926 Durant Star coupster 4 cylinder? Thanks everyone.

That part page is out of Leaside 1938 catalogue. Here's the Durant US counterpart.

Can't find anything on Google search showing the W4A / W5A engines giving info or exploded view. Perhaps a DMACer can point Mark in right direction where to get his hands oily on his pump.
