I went to a local bearing house and this is what we found out:

They said there is no other bearing made to that dimension, published anyhow.

According to INA, they hold the rights to the bearing. They have never sold one in the U.S., and the only customer is Mercedes. They have 7 of them, in stock, in Germany and are willing to ship them to the U.S.

Here's the catch... They want $198.78 for the bearing and $175 for shipping with a 10-14 day arrival time.

So, I put my pump on the shelf, and replaced the belt with a shorter one.

Thanks for all your help. If any one finds a solution, keep me updated.
