I believe you have to take it apart, press out the bearing and repack it
with grease. I may be wrong but other than an impeller and a bearing,
there is nothing in there. Today a "maintainance free" (meaning toss it
when it quits) aluminum water pump is about all that is available. (I do
have one NOS cast iron pump but it is 40 years old)
At about $35 new, why dis-assemble your old?
There are shops that will rebuild old water pumps too.
