Seems like I remember one of them being chain driven. I think a chain is a lot more likely to fail than an oil pump, and if I remember right, the chain driven one is at the rear of the motor.
Jerry, your rememberer like mine is broken.:raspberry:
Yes the oil pumps are chain driven but there's only one chain and it drives both oil pumps plus the water pump.

The simplest test is to remove water pump cover. If the water pump turns by hand you have a problem, if the water pump doesn't turn when you crank the engine you have a problem.

He's already pulled a pressure test and has no oil pressure. If the sump is full, it really doesn't matter if the w/pump spins or not. He's still has a problem....
Yes I know but is the problem in the rear chain drive or the pump?
If he wants to fix it he could save many hours by narrowing it down to the front or back of the engine.

pulled the smaller cover off the water pump and verified that it is not turning. i guess the next step is to pull the the motor and take the rear cover off?
The pump doesn't turn by hand or it doesn't turn with the engine?
