    159MM pump delima , rebuild / WSM ?

    I am having to either rebuild my pump ( and new housing ) after bearing failure , seen some ( looks to be black plastic ) pumps from SBT , and I think WSM -- anyone know anything about these , good or stay away? inner race is messed up pretty good on the OEM pump so this will need to be replaced this is why im trying to weigh all options, any feed back is welcomed , and seen some pumps ( solas $$$$) 14 vane , whats so good about them? any increase in speed or something ?

    You can buy bearings and seals online from WSM or SBT if you want to spend money there

    i've replaced dozens of trashed jetpumps with SBT and WSM products ( I always pressure test a new pump "just in case"). Never had an issue. of course a high performance ski or one ridden on the ocean, I'd be suggesting an OEM unit, just because. Higher priced, but for peace of mind you can't go wrong.
