secondary air pump

Hello group,

I have diagnosed that my air pump is dead.

I have been looking for a used one but am not making much progress.

Is there any way the pump can be repaired?

the car was built in 85/86

I like the idea of swapping the head, installing a chip, maybe install a cold air intake.

it would definitely add a few hp.

what colour where they originally?
