Thoughts on this... Can I reuse the oil pick-up tube after my motor blew? I found big metal chunks in the oil tube screen, oil filter and in the bottom of the oil pan. The only reason I'm asking is because no one has the oil pick-up in stock, they are on national back order and they don't know when they will get more, the GM Part# 12639214, I cleaned the tube in an industrial parts cleaner and blew compressed air through it as well. It's getting into the single digits at night and I need to get this truck done before it's -30 LOL I'm working on this outside, I don't have a garage to use at this time. Thanks

You’ll be fine reusing it. Just make sure that the screen isn’t damaged, as you wouldn’t want any potential debris to be able to make its way up to pick up tube. Inspect the screen, clean it well, and you’ll be fine.
