View Full Version : 5S oil pump on gen1 3SGE ?'s

According to what I see, people say I need a 177 tooth belt. They mention the st205 as being right but theres a lot of blur if they mean JDM or USDM. So i guess my question is, how many tooth is the USDM gen3 3sgte timing belt.

25 teeth on the 5s pully btw, I think my gen1 3s was 27 tooth

Im tempted to just use my 3s pully on the 5s pump so I dont have to jump hoops to get a timing belt every 100k miles. Plus the gen1 3sge belt is cheaper ;)

*smacks head* I scrapped all the 3s oil pumps I had.... FFFFFF

25 teeth on the 5s pully btw, I think my gen1 3s was 27 toothYes, but it shouldn't make any difference unless you have the larger water pump pulley as well?

I use the GTE/Late 5S type pumps on all my motors, the smaller 3S type sucks
Some GTE pumps won't fit the gen1 GE block - check it will go in deep enough 1st
