    You would almost be ahead if you got a whole new pump. Motor, housing, valves, fully loaded so to speak.

    I have to work within my means. And it gets better every year. Unless you are willing to loan me the 1300 bucks till feburary, im pretty much stuck. it may not be easy, but every year I have fewer and fewer problems.

    The parts you are talking about, would be the valves? or more?

    Everything inside that manifold. The valves, the cross over valves springs etc.
    And again knowing how you are and how you claim to fix things, there will be constant threads on how to fix this that or the other.
    And there's also the point of fixing verses buying new. Is it worth fiddling with it for weeks or months vers installing new in a day or two.

    What exactly broke? Did break in half? And how the hell did you break it?

    Normally the manifold will only require valves to be transferred.

    I did help. I offered good advice. Not my fault you don't want to hear the truth. Or the right way to fix things.
