Next we insert one bolt that the oil-pump body slides onto as we align the HVHP gasket. The HVHP gasket is different than a traditional H-D gasket, so if you ever need to replace it, be sure to get the correct gasket for the HVHP oil pump.

Place the HVHP oil-pump housing over the gasket, onto the two bolts. Make sure not to tear the gasket material.

Hold the oil-pump pinion gear in place so the oil-pump drive shaft inserts into the pinion gear while placing the oil-pump body onto the mounting screws.

Insert the top bolts through the oil-pump and into the engine case. Make sure to only hand-tighten these bolts at this time.

Verify the oil-pump pinion gear is on the drive shaft, and also verify the oil-pump gears are spinning freely inside the housing.
