For someone that knows absolutely nothing about the conversion you are quite sure of yourself. Parts availability and servicability long after I am gone was a primary design goal. It can be serviced just as easily as an OEM piston pump - probably easier than rebuilding the OEM pump and certainly for less $$$$. All wear parts in the pump drive can be replaced with off the shelf items for under $50. If you wanted to replace the pump itself with a brand new one while you are at it cost would still be under $150.
Needle bearing - B-168 (slightly longer version of Ford piston pump bearing)
Inner race : IR-121616
Double row angular contact ball bearing: 5205-2RS
Pump - SAE-A .55 CID gear pump
This configuration will last every bit as long as the OEM configuration if not longer. Put your order in now for delivery around Ground Hog day....
PS> Newest wrinkle - customer wants to use it to replace a worn out, non-rebuildable, OEM piston pump with worn out non-rebuildable live PTO auxiliary pump. Slightly larger displacement pump with a secondary priority flow coming soon.....
