1991 Ford Ranger Question: Oil Pressure

What drives the oil pump? and what couldve possibly broke that wont spin the shaft to the oil pump anymore? -
Answer 1
The oil pump is driven by the auxillary pulley/shaft inside the timing cover. This pulley is driven by the timing belt. A broken timing belt would mean a non functional oil pump, among other things. What is your symptom? -
