I'm suprised that she wanted the core back!  I lost the SCP on my 5K a while
ago at 265K, figured it didn't owe me anything, so replaced it with a better
looking used one.  (Old cars don't deserve new parts, don't spoil them!
They'll just want more.)   Anyway, I superficially looked ofer the old pump,
hoping to be able to take it apart and replace the leaking shaft sealal.  It
doesn't look possible, as the pump housing appears to be ultrasonicly welded
