Conserving the Kugelfischer?

When I bought my tii, a spare tii engine was included. I'm keeping it for parts, mainly the Kugelfischer pump - should the one that's currently on the car be or become faulty.

Now, the question is, should I take some conserving measures towards the spare pump? The rubber sealings on the four top allen plugs are replaceable, but what if there are rubber sealings inside the actual pump? If the pump sits for, say, ten years on the shelf, will it go bad?

I had a theory about removing the cold start coolant wax element on the back of the pump and then submerge the whole pump in gasoline... or would I be better off by not doing that?

Any ideas?

pump's mechanism, and turn it over and store it in another direction, every three months or so, when you change your oil in your other cars.

The K-fish pumps are only happy when they are running. After they are kept in a box, they tend to develop leaks.

I wouldn't submerge in gasoline. If it were to dry up you could end up with a lot of resin.

I would leave any dirt on the pump and give it a spray of light oil, then store in a plastic bag.

...I'll use some sort of oil instead, and tumble it on the shelf on a regular basis.
