So I got around to eliminating the balance shafts on my rebuilt 4g. I have the stub shaft installed and the freeze plug in but on the stub shaft hole what threads into that to keep oil from coming out? There's an o ring that sits on top in the groove but they don't give you anything to thread into the hole. Thanks for any input this is my first bs I've eliminated so its got me stumped.

I circled the threaded hole on the oil pump hopefully someone can clear this up. I don't know if it's supposed to stay open or not.

When I bought my new oil pump it didn't have anything there. But if it was there wouldn't I have to remove it to bolt in the stub shaft because there's a bolt that goes under it?

Thank you guys for clearing that up. I have not a clue what I did with my old oil pump, so I'll have to snag it off of an engine I have laying around.

Frick me so the stub shaft doesn't bolt to that gear? I watched a video of someone using the bolt from the balance shaft and bolting it to the stub shaft in that place.

Yeah I got it I could of just unbolted the back cover and not touch the castle nut. Except my oil pump didn't come with a castle nut which I have no idea if they do or not. Thanks again man for clearing things up.

Sometimes things just go right over my head.
