I gave a longer answer on the other thread. Your welcome, the reason for that thread was to take the mystery out of working on machines.
The pump on mine was working fine, I had a new one and so I replaced it. For the most part, if it works, don't fix it. LOL!

Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!

No idea what's typical but my 02 Silvia is still running on its original pump.

The carbon steel screws on my machine had rotted and were broken in the GH and it was a little tricky to remove them.

OK... so it looks like I have this problem with two screws on my unit.  How on earth do I fix this problem?  Suddenly this looks like it's not going to get done this weekend...

:P
