Wanted 150hp Ficht fuel pump

As per title really, mine seems to have a leak, after getting the engine serviced the other day the mechanic noticed slight surging with the engine running on muffs, so he stoped the engine to investigate, and found a slight leak coming from the fuel pump, so air was being drawn through whilst running causing slight surging. Leaking out only seemed to accure with engine turned off, and whilst applying pressure to the prim bulb. I've been told the pump is non repairable?
I've been quoted 300 + vat for this part, plus I need a throttle sensor which is 80 +
So whats my best option here, try and find second hand, with no telling how long that would last, or just bite the bullet and give my credit card a thump.
Any cheaper options advice much appreciated. ( And I don't mean " You should've bought a ?" )
Cheers
Paul.

May be worth looking on ebay US. There should be plenty of used FICHT parts around, as they had a tendency to blow their powerheads.

No probs thank you for looking.
I've ordered brand new now, great deal from South coast marine. highly recommended I must say.

My nxt question is, will I need the mechanic with his diagnostic kit to set up, or is it a straight forward swop over jobby.
Cheers

Yeah I checked all that, and after considering the used prices with postage I thought there would be no telling how used those items actually are.

Apparently the internal body of these things are prone to corrosion after ten years, which fits the age of my engine, so should be good for another decade.
