    Yup......we have been doing that for a long time. I just brought 20 of them to the midwest get together. Get your pump bearings and seals from them too.

    None of the seals i use have stainless springs and there are no issues. If I were running in salt water maybe I would be concerned.

    You can use o-rings instead of the spring.

    Does anyone have a number for the bearing/sleeve between the two seals?

    BTW - found these with free shipping.

    The bearings are not very expensive. < $3 each.
    The seals sell for ~$12-$14 each at most Polaris parts outlets. They should really cost about $4-$5 each considering what they are.

    Thanks for this info guys!
