Matt is right that thing may not be hurt as bad as it might seem. It almost certainly is just an Aluminum rod fitted to the crank and has no bearings, just the aluminum against the cast iron crank. For sure the best thing to do would be to just run it and listen for a knocking sound because until it starts to knock, if it ever does, then there would be no real need to change the pump. Just run it a couple of hours and then change the oil, if it runs that long without a problem there is a good chance it will last a long time.
