There are a lot of 455's out there in home owner land.

My buddy dropped his 455 off because its not oiling .I tore it down and everything looked ok. Worm gear looked fine also. I robed a oil pump out of a 350 and still no oil. Has anyone ever had to prime a oil pump before? I don't see a filter in the tank either. I drained the oil and put some gas mix in the oil tank. Mix came out. I emptied the tank and put bar oil back in and nothing. Any suggestions??

Ron there should be a filter type strainer on the end in oil tank if you look at IPL in 1st post here.

Ideas to try.  Since the 350 oil pump you know is good with your 350 worm gear and 350 oil pump didnt work with 455 worm gear. Put your 455 oil pump in 350 with 350 worm gear that works.  This should tell you if 455 oil pump or 455 worm gear not working properly.

Update. It was pluged between the oil pump and the oil tank. I took the pump off and sprayed carb cleaner in the oil line. Pumps oil fine now.

Hope you put a strainer on it if it was missing inside tank.

hey guys, I have a few 455 ranchers and found out the hard way that the older models didn't use a fine enough screen to prevent the feed line from clogging. the newer models on the shelf now use a different hose and a finer screen, they are interchangeable. the newer style screen is white plastic so it's easy to tell that's it's the new updated one.

There are times that a non invasive solution is needed like a oil tank of kerosene to flush things out?

But the real solution to the problem has been already posted by others.

I just mention this as removing the pump and replacing the pickup tube is beyond the scope of Joe firewood.
