Hi All,
Can anyone advise me how to get and repair the gear sprocket in the AMFA bilge pump on my Amel 54.
When the pump stopped working I thought it was needing the service kit, I replaced all the inner parts but then discovered that the gear sprocket had broken. The 24v electric motor is running fine. Can this nylon/plastic part be obtained and replaced?

Best Regards

Thank’s Alan,
That does seem a good option, I like the hand crank option on it. 
Do you find that it is big enough for your boat? The specs I saw indicated that is suits boats up to 40ft.
Changing the kit on the AMFA is very awkward and I can now see that my PVC cover plate is warped a bit. 
Best Regards
Barry

Barry,
It really doesn't matter what they say about boat length, it's the capacity of the pump that's important and the Viking 32 has very similar specs to the original pump,.
On the plus side, it's a lot less expensive, easier to get spares for ... we had to make a new mount for it which I made out of a nylon cutting board by drilling holes in the appropriate places...oh and the inlet and outlet hoses are bigger than the original, so I swapped the outlet for the manual pump and used an adaptor at the hose end of that to keep the same bore from the sump through the Viking pump to the outlet.
We've had it for nearly 2 years now and it's working fine.
Cheers
