Best description of the reseal procedure is in the Bentley for the 200q20v.
I'd say the shaft seal is worth replacing. You need a press or a really
large, strong, vise to get the pulley flange off the shaft. I rebuilt two
pumps without doing the shaft seal. Both later suffered shaft seal
failure. So I now replace that seal too.
