Interesting that: 1.Last summer, when I had my local shop replace the water pump, the Laso pump was $23.00 LESS than the Graf (This site). Now, as you said, the Laso is more expensive! 2.The local MB Dealer was the place that put the Graf pump on, several years ago. 3.Speaking of prices, the price of a AC suction hose more than doubled in about a year's time for my '87. (This is after checking more than one parts site.) - I write down prices of parts that I might need in the future and file them.
