I have read where that sludge is from mixing different oil brands, and the additives not mixing, also from carbon from not changing the oil enough. From my experience, I have seen some bikes that were neglected but clean on the inside, and others that were well maintained that looked worse than yours.

BTW: Will you send me your old pump if I pay the shipping?

I doubt that that much sludge was from only one or two oil brand changes, that is, if that is what really causes it. For me, I use Honda oil in all my Wings, but because I never bought one new, I can't say if that keeps sludge from collecting.

Yes, I have rebuilt a few lately, and would not mind having another on hand. I have given (installed) a couple to friends that needed them, now I would like to make a spare for myself. Is yours still spinning or is it locked? (not that it matters)
