Default Manzel Oiler & Feed Injectors

First item on the ticket is I need my Manzel model 25 lubricators rebuilt, the ratchet assemble is stripped where the rod screws into it for a seal to the external of the housing and it's leaking slightly. I didn't know if there were companies anyone have in mind that they'd suggest to rebuilt these three units.

The second item is I was wondering on the reliability of boiler feed injectors, Penberthy, Buffalo, etc. I am trying to find a boiler makeup water feed system that won't require our electric feed water pumps to be kicking on and off if I could have just a steady inflow of water. We have a steam Union duplex feed water pump, however the previous operators of the CBelle didn't believe in the proper layup of the vessel and it cracked the cylinder, they then tried to weld it together further destroying it, needless to say to have Union repair the pump it came in at $30,000 and a new unit of the same size and capability was at $60,000. So I imagined a feed injector could be a less expensive option, however I have to imagine there are many drawbacks to the units, which is why I am asking for your opinion.
