Default Super II Pump Replacement

My Hayward Super II Pump (dual speed) has died and I've been told to
replace it with a single speed. Unfortunately I don't know what HP to
get. My current says it's 2.5 HP (although the part number indicates
it's only 2 HP SP1620-Z-2-MBK). My pool is 13,000 gallons, 5' at the
deepest, and DOES have an automatic pool cleaner, but does NOT have a
spa.

Incidentally, do I really need to replace the entire pump? Apparently
the pump ran dry due to a blockage in the lines this past summer. The
repairman said it was bad, but cleaned something out and sprayed it
with WD40. Told me it would only last me a little while longer.
Today I woke up to it "screaming", so I'm guessing it's finally given
out. But with all the parts that I'm able to purchase separately, it
seems I should be able to repair the existing pump instead of
purchasing a whole new one. Any thoughts? I don't have a lot of
money, but I do need whatever I do to last so I'm not continously
putting money into the pool.

If I do need to replace, please advise on what HP I should get.

Thank you!

If you are handy, replacing bearings and seals is not that big of a job.
