Should I buy new seals, or replace the oilpump?

Anyone ever had an oilpump failure?

I think I would just get a new one, to be sure it's all good.
After my engine failure the last time, I went a head and got a brand new one.
Better safe than sorry I guess...

I did the Endyn treatment on a used one I had. What you should do before getting set on buying a new one is:
Open up the used one.
inspect the coverplate and pump housing for wear.
inspect the rotating parts for wear.
Remove the pressure relief(spring and plunger)
Degrease it all very well.
Rinse and blow with compressed air.
If everything checked out to be fine, use it.

There are some measurements that can be made between the two inpellers with feeler gauges, but I'mn not sure what. Instead, I would base it on the frequency of maintenance that was performed on the vehicle, and the mileage on the pump.

If you use it, grease lightly the parts that move against another surface. Make sure that you grease the plunger as well, as this would suck if it stuck closed/open. Look at Endyn's site for pics on this stuff.

it's most likely cheaper to replace the oil pump
No. The inspection/cleaning/assembly is free. It just takes a little time. I thought that d-series people were willing to get down and dirty...

As for the gaskets, you still need to buy the o-rings, whether you purchase a new pump or not, and they come in any regular gasket kit. Or you can buy just those gaskets/o-rings...
