I bought the 90-93 factory manual off ebay. it does not have the oil pump replacement procedure.
Searched here for oil pump replacement and found nothing.
found these steps on ehow and want to verify. fine with everything else. Also the full motor gasket kit does not come with a gasket between the oil pump pickup and oil pump?
only rubber o-rings in gasket kit
Install your new oil pump to the engine block and torque the mounting bolts to 108 in-lb. Insert the oil screen and torque those mounting bolts and nuts to 108 in-lb.
Insert the oil pan and the balancer driven pulley to the front balancer belt. Use a suitable tool to hold the balancer shaft in place and torque the attaching bolt to 22 ft-lb. Put the balancer driven gear on your rear balancer shaft and torque that bolt to 18 ft-lb.
Line up the groove on the pulley edge to the pointer on the balancer gear case and install the balance or gear case to the engine with its mounting bolts and nut. Use a 6 x 100 mm bolt to hold the rear balancer shaft in place and then tighten the mounting bolts and the nut to 18 ft-lb.
Observe the alignment of the pointer on the balancer pulley, ensuring that it aligns with the pointer on the oil pump. Install or connect the pulley to the crankshaft and the CKP sensor, tightening the mounting bolts to 108 in-lb. Connect the timing belt tensioners, timing belt, balancer belt, crankshaft pulley and the lower timing belt cover.
Sorry to hear about your manual not containing this information, what a pita.
Here are the steps from my manual, these are for a 94-95 accord but these cars have similar engines and identical oil pumps.
At least you can confirm a few things to be assured the job was done correctly.

Oh yea, for those who may still be reading this. I fought for hours trying to get my balancer seal back in place. Then even went as far to take off oil pump and still couldn't get it it. Be sure that when you buy the parts to get the correct one. come to find out I was trying to put the camshaft seal on the balancer shaft. There is about an 1/8" difference in diameter in the two seals.
