Where's the pressure????

I lost an EFI fuel pump and I didn't even know it!!! It is SSSOOOO nice to have built-in redundancy. I flew to breakfast and, while starting the plane for the return, noted that I had no pressure from my auxilary high-pressure pump. No biggie, I flew back home without it. On further inspection, the pump appears to be mostly seized up. When I hit it with something (a wrench), it will spin for a moment but then stops. Both of my pumps are junkyard units so I don't have any bad feelings about it dying. I quickly found a "new" junkyard replacement and headed back to the sky!!
