About buying parts: New means everything is new. Remanufacture means that the unit was disassembled and all parts that can get worn or are worn are replaced; basically, that's an old case with all new internals. Rebuilt means that the unit was disassembled and all parts that were found to be defective (broken & worn) were replaced. Refurbished means that a non-working unit was made to work; that might just be a cleaning & lubrication and broken parts replaced, but parts that were just worn were not. Cheap rarely works.

Terms tend to be applied rather loosely. Ask the seller exactly how they apply this term.
