Water pump gasket

I've had a pinhole leak in my water pump gasket that I need to fix. Should I replace the pump? i've seen them for $75.00 on e-bay. Are they just junk? Anyone use one? Thanks

Surprised no one responded. I broke a bolt in my water pump when replacing my t-stat. I replaced the whole pump and found it was about to go out anyways. Replace it, use a fine grit sand paper to clean the surface and DO NOT use any rtv. Torque the bolts (can't remember the specs) and call it good.

I DID use RTV. I'm good.

I should correct myself by saying I used small dabs of RTV to hold the gasket in but do not use it as a sealer. You could get away with it but it's not designed for it.

I'm going to replace it soon. It's a small leak, but I don't think it will fix it self. Thanks for the help.
