    Jims uses the stock Harley oil pump in there 131'' engines and it works great.

    The OEM pump is more than enough to handle the oiling needs of that 117".:)

    Never seen a problem with a H D pump, some times its hard to beat THE MOCO

    I think the HD pump should be fine, if you are worried about it put a #2 Baisley spring in your pump.

    Good choice.
    Have built over 30 plus, 117"s, since 12/06, and only once have used another pump,(or cam plate for that matter) and that was at the clients request.
    6, 124" in-house at this point, and NONE will recieve a different pump/plate.
    That whole thing, is a pile of wasted money.:)
