I think Vintage Parts buys up old dealer stock. I can go direct to their website and check inventory. I have purchased parts from them simply by calling them. www.vpartsinc.com

I probably used 2 gallons of OxyClean on it before rinsing. After drying, I probably went through a can of brake cleaner afterward to deal with some of the worst areas.

Disconnect the module in the rear and the light will go out. You can replace the motor, but it may be difficult finding one; bigger problem may be finding a working pump.
