See   http://www.pbase.com/kneale_brownson/image/31559742    and the next
couple pix after it.

I've resealed several pumps.   The ones where I replaced the front seal
instead of just doing the various O-Rings have provided extended service.
The one now on my 200q20v has been going for about three years now.  The
one on our V8 #1 has been running dry for at least two years.   The one on
V8 #2  hasn't leaked since I reinstalled it this spring at the end of the
timing belt job.  I did one on a 5ktq that sat a couple years and has been
running the last 18 months with no reported leaks.  Just talked yesterday
to the guy who bought the car and got it running again.
