Ok so I just had my engine built and I am putting the pickup tube back on. I am using a Melling 10355 oil pump and I have my OEM pickup tube. I have ARP man cap studs. What seems to be happening (or so from what I can see) the pickup tube is bottoming out on the oil pan. I have a 1/4 gap in between the oil pan gasket and the oil pan with the screen part of the pickup tube bottoming out. Has anyone else had this issue?
