Hi Guys /Girls
I've been a member for a while , but spent most of the time peering over the fence.
Hoping someone can help with a reasonably priced scavenge pump?

Let me start:-
I have a '95 blade sssa (vfr750)
engine is 919 out of 97 blade
RX7 front end ( I Hate)
scubidoo turbo (which I love) td04, not 05
GSX1000 tail.
bit of a Frankenstein and it drives like it!
Gearing is way to low, handles VERY badly, but Jesus it feels quick! :thumb:
I've always owned 'blades, but as long as im not facing a corner :eek:
this feels fast
Im a car mechanic that hates cars but is trying to learn bikes so be gentle

I'm currently running a facet pump to disgorge oil back to engine , but scared shi---ess its gonna give way any time soon. unfortunately turbo is to low to gravity drain( design error) so has to be pumped. not cheap
Anyone know a decent SMALL pump I might use?

Also desperate to replace front end, Its awful compared to vanilla blade('97)
I would really be grateful for good suggestions for a straight swap. Getting a little fatigued at making every nut and bolt :rant:
Thanks for any help....
Ive included some basic pics 'cos forum says I should and I like to share :thumb:
Be warned, she is ongoing....

I will get ahold of a friend tomorrow. He was using a scavenge pump till I gave him my header that moved the turbo up some and allowed gravity return.

Thought turbo should be higher than oil pan for it to drain on its own. Then.you dont need. Scavange pump

Yeah, messed up on measurements for headers. Dropped them an inch lower than they should have been and Turbo started oiling. Will sort it later but I had those made, as I have no access to tig and I wanted a clean finish.
Runs really well but the pump is a problem.

I always wanted to turbo my ol 9r. Maybe someday... When i get another 9r..
You done alot of work to the old bike. That sssa is very popular amongst the 9r crowd it seems.
I do like the ugly green hoses :)
