Hello all, and Happy New Year!

My two cents on water pumps for the 6.9:

When I bought my 6.9, the previous owner had recently replaced the water pump with a rebuild from e-bay. However, within a year of the replacement, it began to fail. Really nice noise! Thankfully, no damage to the motor, everything made it OK.

I called Tom at the Classic Center, and was shocked by the price for a factory rebuild. Nonetheless, given the previous pump's history, I went ahead and spent the money. When the pump arrived I suddenly understood the cost; the thing is massive!

I replaced the water pump well over two years ago. The car runs cooler than it did with the old one in hot weather, and there has been nary a hint of an issue with the factory rebuild. For my money, spend the extra, and go with the genuine MB rebuilt part.

Just a suggestion... You can take it or leave it...



Best Regards,
Jim

Unfortunately I have already ordered the eBay pump and it is on its way. The cost including freight to Australia was US$ 680. As a matter of interest how much is genuine MB one? Regards Mark.
