I have a 99 Vulcan,Nomad with the 1500 carb motor. The oil light came on and I shut the engine off within a few seconds. I have already changed out the POG about 4,000 miles back. Had no issues and everything seemed good. I have not taken anything apart yet. Was considering all options. I know the bike ain't worth very much without a good motor. Considering I have time on my side, I have looked at used motors but know I would have to check to see if the POG had been replaced, or rebuild my motor. I'm thinking of at least checking to see if the replacement gear somehow came off. But worse case if the oil pump needs changed (how often do these fail) how big of job, new or used oil pump, is there anything else that I should do once the engine is appart. I love my bike and would just like to get it back on the road but I don't want to be stupid.
