Rebuildable ... meaning like new shaft seals, impeller, etc ? No.
Besides, for the cost of the new pump, it's just not worth it.

If the solenoid coil goes bad, that is easy to repair with a new coil, takes all of ten minutes. The only other parts I know that are available for them would be the strainer and cover gasket.

Clean Cut Pump

The Beckett CleanCut is a Suntec made & labeled for Beckett.

ok, but the one he put on is different. it doesn't have the purge on it like the other one did and i just wondered if i could rebuild this and put it back on. they are pretty pricey to buy, actually twice the price of the one he installed. he just didn't have the exact replacement on his truck. any advice?

Rebuilding

Even if you could get the parts, do not try to rebuild this pump yourself. The addition of an electric solenoid will make the new pump function the same or better than the cleancut. I presume you have a R7184B, P, or U pimary control on the boiler?

it is a 7184 p 1080, the wiring is still there from the old one, so how would i do this with the solenoid you said about?

Solenoid

Suntec makes a solenoid valve specificly for this purpose. http://www.suntecpumps.com/

Click on products, then on Models R & C shut off valves. You would wire the valve to neutral (white) & valve wire (Purple?) on the primary.
The valve you would want would be the 115 volt, 300#, no delay. It is available in either pump or burner body mount.
