Drilled Oil Pump Nut - M50, M52, M52TU, M54, S50US, S52
Precision drilled oil pump nut to attach safety wire for preventing costly loss of oil pressure
Our Drilled Oil Pump Nut for M50, M52, M52TU, M54, S50US, and S52 engines is a strongly-recommend replacement for the factory nut that is well-known for backing off and allowing the oil pump sprocket to fall off. This leaves you without a functioning oil pump and no oil pressure! If you're doing any work with the oil pan off (rod bearings, oil pan baffle, oil pan gasket, etc) that is the perfect time for this precautionary and vital upgrade.
This nut is pre-drilled for safety wire, and it's the perfect solution for preventing this future problem. Wrap the safety wire around the spokes of the oil pump sprocket. The wire method is preferred over welding the nut so you can continue to do maintenance on the system. We don't see the need for threadlocker on the nut as all threadlocker is one-time use and becomes useless if the nut is ever removed again. The 330i ZHP came with factory-applied threadlocker but the safety wire is our preferred method. This is very cheap insurance that can save your engine - a must if you track your car.
