This new high-pressure oil pump for Ford Pinto will be of interest to kitcar enthusiasts.

Higher oil pressure and greater capacity are always a good idea when tuning an engine, but are essential when preparing an engine for track-day or competition use.

Fortunately, the cost of higher oil pressure and higher capacity isn’t expensive. The Burton Power FT1055A Uprated Oil Pump for the Ford SOHC Pinto engine costs just £68.95 inc VAT.

A new FT1057 driveshaft will also be required at £9.95 inc VAT.

Fitting this pump and shaft will give a hefty 23 per cent increase in flow volume.
