<VV> Any thing else I should check?

OK, I definitely have an original oil pump then.  I'll try removing the
pressure relief valve to see if it is stuck.  This 102hp engine doesn't
have a harmonic balancer, just a crankshaft pulley.  I could be
completely daft when I say that I didn't notice any engine vibration.
If there were any abnormal engine vibration, how could I tell?

Sure, it's easy to check for the high volume pump.  The conversion uses 
taller gears - the original pump cover is a flat plate and the gears 
fit in the housing.  The taller gears require either a spacer or a 
thick cover that's machined out to accept part of the gears.
