found the parts on ebay from a few power equipment companies relatively cheap.....took the whole pump apart all the ball bearings are fine...no bad wear or gouge marks on any of the parts, washers etc........installed new seal kit on all seals while i had it apart.....only parts i saw with some wear was the cylinder block "heads" were worn down a little and the valve plate had use marks on it from where the heads hit.......plate was still relatively smooth but i got a feeling it would start gouging soon.....for $75 bucks i figured get whole new valve plate and cylinder block kit and not have to worry about it again (knock on wood) until the mower is on its last legs.
any suggestions for determine bad enough wear on the valve plate to warrant tossing it.....or saving it as a backup.
