It's going to be interesting for sure...
You need a training session prior to attempting the repair of the only RW pump you have.
I suggest use use the same techniques I have done for the past 50 years in adult technical training courses I have conducted, on something I haven't worked on before. Purchase
a used item identical to the one you have to repair and get your experience on that one. Also you have an expendable part if things go wrong or a known good spare, if you get it correct.
Used is far better than new for learning
because you get to observe a part requiring repair.
Your tech manuals
are absolutely required, but with actual hands on work you will come into the job with confidence and experience.
No one ever started skilled in their endeavors, they were formally trained or they spent many more hours learning
Setting up a work shop/work bench with tools also requires skills that have to be acquired.
When you learn what is required to repair something you also we be equipped with more abilities to determine if something is practical or economical to repair.
Good luck with your projects.
