[xk] Oil Pump for a 120

To The Group:
I need some advise on, and one part for, a 120 oil pump. I have just
obtained a matched set of gears and now need the spindle that drives one
of the two gears, in fact it meshes with the other gear and pumps the
oil. The spindle I have is badly worn at both ends (about 10 thousands
under size).
Does anyone out there have a spindle that they might be willing to part
with in a sale? Usually the spindle has not been removed from the gear
(it has to be pushed off with a hydraulic ram). I would be willing to
purchase both in order to get a good one.
Has anyone dealt with this problem previously and would be willing to
pass along some advice?
Thanks to all,

As a last resort. Have your spindle flame sprayed and machined to original
specs. Or nickel plated and ground back to specs. DO NOT chrome plate and
grind back. Chrome is prone to flake off. You don’t want chrome flakes
floating in your motor oil. Hope you have better luck finding a proper
spindle. Refurbishing yours will be a bit expensive by the above two
methods.
