I don't get any pleasure from it and I hope others learn something from it.

I do carry a good set of spares but I would rather avoid using them. Some of them are now so old that I worry they may be no good if I do need them. Time to throw money at it. Install new parts and buy new spares.
Whoa, wait a minute ... the fuel pump should be sent to a shop and tested. It might still be OK and if so, install it and send the current one in for overhaul and keep that as a spare. Rotate your spares, don't just wait until you are afraid to use them then throw them away and buy new ones again.
