can't find an EA 82 oil pump?1985 GL 10

I think i need an oil pump for my subie, It's been sittin for a good while now because the lifters started ticking...they fade in and out at various rpms.For instance, at 2000 rpms, they get quiet for a minute, then start to tick again,then get quiet........I purchased the gaskets for the oil pump from Subaru for about $20. pretty cheap...The oil pump WAS available for $131. until I got the $ this month, then they ALL dissapeared from the face of the earth!! Subaru has one I can get for $175. TOO MUCH!!!! Can I just re-seal the existing pump? is it time to save for a re-man engine?
Thanks in advance!!

That's pretty much par for the course on engine parts.
If you're going to drive old cars - best be putting money aside each month for repairs. In the Subaru world the dealer is often the only source but their prices are (fortunately) pretty reasonable.
If you want cheap parts I suggest a SBC. Super cheap parts. Mileage generally sucks though.
