"My plan is to get a new pump then try to rebuild the other one and use it as a spare."

NO!

After you rebuild the old pump, install it. See it back working!

The new one gets put in the locker as the on board spare.

Great advice! We try to do that now even with new spares. Through the years we've been burned a few times thinking the spare was an exact replacement or the rebuild was rebuilt correctly.
