As it turned out, I already had the oil pump of the projector, I just did not know it. After a lot of legwork, and thanks to one of the two major benefactors of this restoration effort: Warren Smyth of New Zealand, I realised that that strange gear, inside of the lower sprocket casing, was in fact the oil pump! Go figure!

That little piece of pipe that´s sticking out beneath it is what connects the pump to the bat where the oil is collected.

As you can see, it is quasi-hard to suspect that the pump is hiding inside that casing once the cover is on!
