SINCE there are NO replacement parts available for either repair, most technicians wouldn't even try either repair! I can understand why you are trying this but I wouldn't go to that effort when replacement parts aren't avail. The air pump is a warm-up device & doesn't do anything but help with cataylst warm-up. Maybe if you had 2 or 3 pumps to get parts from you could fix 1.
