1. I need to replace all my valve springs, as they are about 15 thousandths short. What is the cheapest place to get good quality springs from?

2. My oil pump is in good shape, but the shaft has the little groove from the seal, as well as a bunch of other imperfections that I think will prevent it from sealing, even with the special seal that moves the sealing point. Is there somewhere that just sells the oil pump shaft? All I have found is whole pumps for like $150. I was also told about something called a "speed sleeve" that fits onto the shaft, sort of like a bushing, that provides a new sealing surface. Has anybody used one of these before?

Call Dave MIller's Subaru in Eagle River and explain your situation to him, or better yet, go visit him and see his set up. You will have some ideas for your own shop in the future. He'll help you out if he can.
