I have the SMX pumps on my boat. So I change every 2 years. It is NOT a fun job on either engine. It is easier to pull the pump and do it rather than jack around down there with those little screws. And guess what??? I carry an entire spare pump assembly with a new impeller in it. Suck on that Ted!!!!
I have both a new pump and spare impellerS.

My 6CT300 Cummins doesn't have an aftercooler.

But you do have more engines to service than I do. So I guess you win.
