    What to do with two leaky PS pumps?

    I was given two E30 325i PS pumps a while back, a Vickers and a ZF, both appear to have leaks at the shaft seal. I have no immediate use for them, as my car has a Euro manual rack. Is it worth my time (unemployed so plenty of free time) to rebuild them with the OEM kit and sell them? I haven't had any luck with selling them as-is as rebuildable cores.

    Also, to confirm, do the Vickers and ZF pumps both use the same rebuild kit? Everything I have read indicates that they do, but I haven't seen it explicitly stated, so just hoping for confirmation.

    Go for it. Seals and Orings should all be standard metric sizes.
