Yes Giles still builds pumps. I agree with the snapped plunger idea.

I'd recommend not turning the pump over any more until you've completely removed the head to see what's wrong in there. You may still be able to dodge a bullet.

Well I might see if I can find a used functioning pump and see. I'd like to get a Giles but not sure if I can find or afford one right now.

There's some rebuilt pumps on eBay I might just do. Half the price a Giles. If I had a td maybe it would be more worth it. Eventually swapping something bigger in it but not for a few years.

You can just buy the head and plunger combination and not replace the entire pump.  You know that right?

Completely aware. I don't have the time, knowledge or patience at this point to deal with it.  I need to have it back on the road in a week or two max because it makes my things easier for my business having a pickup.

And that hans guy was the person I saw.

Should I test my spare pump? I will be swapping over my Caddy to a turbo starting this weekend.  If I just took the working pump off of my truck and drained it would you be interested in that?

If all you get from dealing with Prothe is frustration, you've done well. Keep looking.
