I'm in uncharted territory! Thanks for your help!
personally, if it's all clogged up, and you're in there anyways, i'd swap the whole darn assembly (oil pump and pickup). you eliminate any problem that might be caused in the very near future, by not replacing them.
as far as the pickup unthreading.... need a chance to check the book. I'm sure Ramtech will be along to enlighten us in the mean time.
