Hi Richard
Why not rebuild it yourself with one of the Repair Kits available. Just refurbished / Rebuilt our late Style Pump.
It isn't 'Rocket Science' !

I is not just take it apart and put it together. You should have a thick piece of glass and some reasonably fine wet dry automotive finish paper. You will also need a small stone like is used on a sink handle valve to make sure the opening in the top of the pump is flat for the valve to seat against. Otherwise the fuel pressure will be low. You can measure the fuel pump stroke with a 150 MM machinist scale. When assembling the pump the gasket should lay flat against the bottom of the pump.
