spook should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
2T Toyota 1600cc Race Engine

I have just acquired an 1980 era Historic Race Car fitted with 2T Toyota 1600 Engine.

Both the engine in the car and the spare have broken oil pump drives.

Does anyone know these engines and can you suggest a cure for this obvious weak point in the design - or is the design weak for a reason I don't appreciate.

Are go-fast bits still available anywhere for these engines.

Thanks

I am in Australia (East Coast), I suppose I should have mentioned that, but all net info searches have drawn a blank for Toyota engines "so old".
