    If you wanna talk semantics, no it doesn't drive it. But for simplicity sake, yes the cam syncro drives the oil pump. Why do you ask?

    Yes the hex shaped shaft that drives the oil pump comes out with the cam syncro.

    The oil pump drive shaft is held in by a small detent ring. Sometimes the oil pump drive shaft gets stuck in the oil pump and doesn't come out with the syncro. I've found that long needle nose pliers are sufficient at removing the shaft if its stuck. It shouldn't take much effort.
