I talked to Linda @ Carlsen earlier this week and ordered this very
part.  (Why is it that when something happens to my car that someone
else "comes down" with the same problem? Cars aren't supposed to be
subject to contagious infections.)  
Anyway, she quoted me about $90 for the pump and said she'd need the
core back sometime.  It should arrive tomorrow.
When I noticed that mine had begun weeping (120K) I removed it and
plugged the hoses with a lawn hose coupling.  Since it's relatively cool
and haven't stressed the engine I'm confident there's no harm running
temporarily without it.
