worn out oil pump

Hi, I just notice that the clearance in my e150 89 5.0L oil pump is too much. Here's some pics.

New pumps are available at most auto machine shops or parts stores.

I just started to put in a new pump, man this is not an easy job :) it took me almost 20 minutes just to align the shaft to the pump working inside the pan, passing my hands here and there, what a puzzle hopefully I raised the engine 6 inches and it gives me enough space to work in. The old pump was aluminium case but the new is steel and much heavier to manipulate. I torque the bolts to specifications by chance I sticked my gasket on the pan before putting it back under the engine. my U rubber are in place, now its a little bit cold outside, so I'm taking a break right now. Later in the afternoon I will put the pan in place and lower the engine. By the way I had to cut the exhaust pipe that crosses the pan to take it out. I bought a 2 1/4 X 2 1/4 inch adaptor with 2 U bolts to reconnect the pipe after. Well this is it for know,
