I've had my Shurflo 3 gpm pump go bad after only 3 years (bought the boat new). The pump new can be found for as little as $110...the valve thats gone bad is $40 and no gaurantee....so that goes to show you what new stuff is worth nowadays.

I think the rule of thumb is that if you can rebuild for less than 50% of replacement of the EXACT same part (not a inferior substitute), then the rebuild makes sense. Otherwise, replace.
