Was the old one rebuildable? It's way cheaper.

The Kohler OEM fuel pumps keep rising since Kohler seems to want to distance themselves farther and farther from the legacy K series.   

 

I carry both aftermarket and new.  On a whim one time I had a guy who wanted an OEM pump in the pretty blue and white box.  I sold it to him and compared it to the aftermarket pump.  The were identical.  I mentioned that to my Kohler rep and he says to me, "Oh yeah, you'd be surprised to know how many guys are employed at Kohler repackaging parts!" 

 

It was a bit of a facetious comment, but it was still an interesting thought.

the part no. is 47 559 11-s, it is the plastic bodied pump, for the k341 Kohler so I assume it's not something that can be rebuilt after reading the maritimed site.  I am pretty happy with the quality of it after looking at the cheaper version I was handed at a different shop. The cam arm is a better quality and it weigh's almost twice as much and they were asking 145 dollars for that. One thing is for sure living in the great state of "Taxes" New York everything is pretty pricey compaired to other parts of the country. I am on Craig's List looking at the prices paid for GT's across the US and can't believe the deal's. I try to build on a budget as much as I can and only hope that I can get 13 years out of this pump like the original one. Thank's for all the input and help on leads for future parts and I will truely do more research when buying more parts,  :wallbanging:  I wish Ohio was closer  :mad2:
