E30 and old 911 interiors aren't much to write home about.

ARGH. The fucking oil pump won’t prime.

OK...

Circling back to this....

I bought a cheap used oil pump that was available locally in the hope that it would solve my issue. I was *trying* to get it done while my parents were here after Alex arrived. Sadly, that oil pump also failed to deliver pressure.

I broke down and ordered a new one. It never came. (Thanks supply chain. Yes, I'm getting a refund.)

Luckily, I found *one* oil pump in stock at a vendor that had not marked it up to today's price. So for a mere $540, I have a new pump. And said new pump will build oil pressure on the starter quite easily.

So fingers crossed that the engine didn't get damaged by this whole episode....
