Default 1980's Seprotech Parts

I have a 1980's Seprotech 900. Does anyone know if parts are available for the recirculation pump? I know it needs a shaft seal but it started squealing this evening.

I had a coster from the late 80's & the hardest thing to find parts for was the recirc pump. I always wondered if I could replace it with a modern pump but it didn't seem worth it to me. Would have cost more than the value of the machine. Maybe watch for a seprotech getting parted out. Better chance of finding something up that way for sure.never know where one might be. Hope you find one, wiam.

It was between a squeal and a chatter. Dumb spell on my part. I had sap get into the control box quite a while ago when a pressure switch blew out. Contactors sometimes stick and don't turn pumps on. With that piston pump running I did not notice last night that the recirc was not running. finished first pass. When I restarted for second it sounded fine. Pump was not on.
