Vanguard oil pick up question
I am rebuilding the 20hp Vanguard horizontal shaft on my generator. (sucked an intake valve #2 and blew a head gasket #1). I can't really complain, although it doesn't have a lot of hours it is 22 years old. Everything has gone decently so far and am ready for reassembly. Just one question, is the pickup screen assembly on the sump end of the oil pump pickup tube supposed to be loose on the tube? I just want to be sure before putting it all back together. Thank you for any insight and information you can give me.
