    The pump motor in my Pace Desoldering station gave up the ghost and I'd
    like to fix it.

    Anyone parting out or getting rid of an old one?

    You may not need the entire motor (unless you are positive the motor itself
    is bad),
    Pace sells a repair kit for the pump, that is much cheaper.

    Thanks for the followup, but the motor was toasted.

    I was able to get the model number off of the old motor and actually
    found a replacement! the only downside was the shaftlength was a
    little short, so I had to finagle a way to mount the plunger.

    motor replacement

    Why looking for motor when you can use an external sourse of vacuum?
    made by yourself and having much more vacuum and cost allmost nothing
    first find a compressor from a refrigerator a small one for free from a broken unit
    usually they lost freon and put them to garbage but motor is ok .
    This is your vacuum pump then you need an electric valve to open and close the vacuum flow
    by a foot switch or you can use the "comand" from handpiece sw
    for vacuum tank use one empty bottle from freon for free and the valve is from those professional refrigerators controlling the flow of freon maybe you can take one for free from
    a repair shop put them to a proper box make the conections and you have a unit free of troubles for the rest of your life
    Thats the main plan if you are interested i can give the details.

    I made it before give all that money for MBT250 and when i was measure the vacuum in order
    to compare the homemade unit was far away better for 2 reasons
    1=more vacuum
    2=rapid response bacause of the tank (Pace try to rise vacuum thats why motor has 2 speeds) Tank has vacuum ready at max all the time.

    Thats all i hope to help
