Replacement for bk mini 180 gen 1 pump

My old one broke down a few years ago before I shut my tank down. Looking to start another tank and Iím not sure that I can get the proper replacement. The impeller has a ceramic (white shaft).

Can the whole assembly be swapped with the v09 pump?

I don't think there is much point in replacing the completely but so since you only need the motorblock. It's not going to impact performance really but if you really want a complete pump, this is the replacement VS09 version.

This is the replacement motorblock for your existing skimmer which is all you should need.

Do I need to order a ball bearing for inside the motor block also, or is there one integrated into it? I was just checking out the old pump to make sure it wasn't a seized bearing or other failure when I noticed that there appears to be a bearing inside the block too.

The bearing is included with the new motor.

Good question. I am checking with Ft. Myers and Germany to verify that we are actually out of stock on them and if so, when we will have more. Should have an update tomorrow.
