I welcome all ideas on preventive maintenance. Just about everything is very easy to do while the motor is out.

Pretty much everyone i've seen taking apart an engine has noted the nut to break free easy or even begining to untread itself.

Cheap fix is to weld the nut on the shaft , i've heard that the shaft might break instead.
Expensive fix(i went with this) is to pm vaio(some numbers here) and buy his custom pump
EDIT : Screename is vaio76109 Greg's a really nice guy
