I find the $350 price to be a little ridiculous considering Mike can rebuild them to new for less than $100. Suppose the problem here is supply of cores. If you don't have one already, you will have to pay.

Mike, if you are still out there, is this offer still valid?

If not, what are the latest terms?

I talked to Mike Casella today, NOV 30, 2020, about rebuilding a fuel pump. He reminded me that as a member here there is free return shipping.
I had seen his name many times as the go to guy for these pumps. He was great to talk to. He answered all of my questions and was very friendly. I will be sending my pump shortly. I feel that it will be in very good hands and the price is very reasonable.

Dan, everything is still good. We are surviving. Our front door is locked but all it takes is a tap on the door and someone will respond, it's the owner is keeping all of us safe. We weren't considered "essential" so we had to close to the public. The month that I wasn't able to be in the shop didn't stop our customers from sending in their items to be rebuilt, and the workload was tremendous when I did get back in there. What was normally a one day turnaround for fuel pumps, turned into a 2 week deal. Now that the restrictions have been lifted a bit, I'm all caught up on fuel pumps, but mounts and other items are still a bit backed up.

I will be retiring next July, and switching to a 2 day work week, so things may slow down a bit when that happens. And before you ask, no, I haven't found a person to take my place...... yet.

Oh, noes! You need an apprentice to pass your knowledge on.

And... congrats on making it this far!

Until that happens, I'll keep uploading my videos to Youtube to help those that want to tackle this stuff at home.

Your pump landed safe and sound a few minutes ago. It'll be ready to come home in a couple of hours.

Great service. After being received at Then & Now, Mike had it rebuilt and ready to send back in only a few hours. It was only about a week from my door and then back to my door. The pump looks great and I feel confident it was done right. Great pricing too!
I am giving them a five star rating!
I wish there were more companies that operated like this.

It’s also essentially guaranteed forever. But Mike is retiring soon, so he needs to train an apprentice.

I would have been willing to volunteer as that apprentice; I have had experience charting the innards of these pumps, and I tend to catch on quickly with new experiences (i.e., recreating motor mounts). And, it would be nice to have a job to supplement my Army pension. Problem, however, would be geographics; I'd have to commit to a move.

I bet the commute would be a kicker too. In order for someone to do this, it would have to be here. I have a pretty good how-to on these three port pumps on our YouTube channel. In fact there are over 50 different pumps that I've done videos on showing step-by-step how one of those goes from yukie to wow.
