    I don't know the life span of the pump, but if the oil pressure was OK at hot idle, it is probably fine. I had to put a new later model high capacity one in the new block because it has piston...

    If you drive a lot in the city or hill country, your MPG will be low because of the vehicle weight, my suburban and pickup get 16 to 17 mpg on flat highway.

    I have not heard of one going bad. When repairing electronic devices, it is very rare to find a failed resistor. If the resistor failed, you get a #1 default resistance.
