That oil pump rarely goes ‘bad’. Can you tell my why you need one? Usually just a good cleaning, and they will work fine.

If the end cap is scored, a machine shop can machine it smooth [surface grinder] and that will bring the pump back into spec.

If the gear tips are badly scored or maybe rust pitted or the bores in the pump body where the gears run are scored on the walls, then the pump may need to be replaced.

The square tube that connects the camshaft drive-gear to the oil pump is prone to failure, the tube splits on the corners then expands and slips on the square input gear shaft, make sure you inspect this drive-tube closely.
