2007 3.8 Oil pump replacement

Hi,

I'm having trouble locating a how-to youtube video or set of instructions in respect to replacing the oil pump ion the 07 3.8L JK.

The forums lead me to believe that the priming of the oil pump is problematic.

Has anyone on here replaced the oil pump?

How much have you learned about the oil pump removal/installation so far?

The oil pump is in the timing chain cover. Oil pan and timing chain cover will have to be removed.
Prime oil pump before installation into the timing chain cover by filling rotor cavity with engine oil.

Consider subscribing to AllDataDIY for access to the JK factory service manual. You can choose a 1 year access, or a 5 year access. I believe it's well worth the small price of admission.

IM aware that the radiator fan, pulleys, ac condenser have to come off prior to the crankshaft pulley being pulled off. Then the oil pan cover and timing chain cover have to come off.

It looks like, the oil pump comes as a replacement kit. Thats where things get a little foggy.
