If its the manifold, you're really screwed - it costs 350.00 and DOES NOT
come with a rebuilt or new 10P17C, and cannot be rebuilt.

The place I deal with here rebuilds for about 100.00, and sells off the
shelf rebuilds for 140.00...

Other option:
Sanden rotary - 600.00 - more output pressure, more efficient (much less
drag), must fit yourself and have at least one hose custom made at 50.00...
