    Photocell clean. Wow thank you for showing the inside of a broken oil pump. If I open it up and check if it is broken I'll just get a new one replaced. But your saying if the cogs are like this you can easily fix it as new again?

    No, you can’t fix that Riello oil pump in photo. The drive pin is broken and the gear will have been cut into by the pin, hence why the pin is not inline with the cut outs in the first gear.
    Some pumps can be occasionally repaired if their pin simply wears though, - like Danfoss.

    They just have 2 or 3 adjustable arms with bent ends that hook below the bearing and a threaded bolt in middle to screw downwards to force bearing up off. No point in spending too much on one, just get a basic one
