    Pump destroyed - which replacement?

    Someone decided to run my ski in 6" of rocky bottomed river today. Ruined the fins in the pump.

    Option 1: I'm thinking... should I go back with a used pump and change the guts over from mine just so I can get one with good fins? This would also require me to purchase a wear ring and impeller. I'm thinking $550 or so.

    Option 2: Buy a new aftermarket housing and then add the impeller and ring for about $650?

    I feel like the $100 is worth it, but I don't know anything about the ebay aftermarket housings.

    Dude, Those pumps are not that expensive. Just get your self a good used one and be done with it. Put up a post on the WTB section. I recommend buying a brass pump which will last a lot longer(brass veins). I might even have one, I'll check for it tomorrow.

    Here's the pump that I had as spare. It's the good pump with the brass stator veins. Not the plastic one like you have. PM me if interested on buying it. Thanks!!

    Carlos, thank you for the offer. I did manage to source a good OEM locally today.

    Stick with the OEM Bronze vane pump. A friend of mine bought a WSM pump for his RX DI, it broke to pieces after two rides. Very low quality materials used by WSM. I Bought a wearing from WSM that lasted only a month or so. I will stick to the OEM if it concerns the pump and driveline.
