I have a green chugger pump for sale. Works flawlessly. Ive upgraded to 2 stainless center inlet pumps. If youre curious about flow, I pumped with this through fifteen feet of 1/2" hose through my 36' 1/2" coil and it pumped strong! The threads on one side are a little marred/stripped but a little bit of teflon tape works perfectly with no leaks. The fittings are not sold with this pump but I think I have two I could sell. Without fittings, $65 shipped, firm.

You realize that you can get replacement, stainless, heads with center inlet for under $55, right? The inline heads are about $50 I believe. So, even if the head threads are totally buggered, you can just get another (it comes complete ready to use). I have two pumps, but the threads on the poly head got F'd up. The other head is center inlet (stainless), so I'm using that one. When I'm ready to use the second pump, I'll just order up a new head and be good to go.

So, with that motor, you could have a stainless headed pump for under $120 (plus shipping)...

Fashion whore...

At least whoever buys the pump now knows they can get a stainless replacement head without spending a lot of cabbage.

I'd grab a can of black spray paint, primer, remove the green part and just repaint it black if it was me. Then you have two pumps to use that won't "clash".
