Oil pumps for trucks and buses
Guaranteed quality has made the brand DT Spare Parts the leading brand in the international Independent Aftermarket for commercial vehicles. The complete range includes all required spare parts for trucks, trailers and buses, including all standard oil pumps.
The oil pump is an essential part of the engine lubrication system. The main purpose of engine lubrication is to reduce friction between gliding components, which results in a reduction in wear. Oil is sucked by the oil pump from the sump, pumped through filter and cooler, and finally conveyed through pipes and channels to the lubrication points.
Oil pumps are usually driven by the timing gears of the engine. In commonly installed gear pumps, a pair of gears conveys the oil over the outer tooth spaces, along the wall of the housing from the suction to the discharge side.
Before installing a new oil pump, the lubricating and drive systems of the engine must be cleaned and may not show any signs of damage. The oil filter is also to be changed. Before operation of the pump, the gears of the new oil pump should be wetted with clean engine oil. Any leaks or unusual noises after installing the oil pump may indicate further defects in the engine.
