I’ve found the front and back circlips on the shaft to be fairly robust, I don’t think there is anything inherently wrong with the design. That said, I think it would be time well spent to replace it if anyone is rebuilding an engine. I would also replace the pulley to shaft key as well. I had one actually break on the ignition pulley once and that was a frightening thing to watch. I can’t tell if your pump is serviceable or not, it doesn’t look all that bad. I would just clean it up, put it back together and see what kind of oil pressure you have.
