    GRAF E500E water pumps on sale at FCP Euro

    Just saw that E500E water pumps made by Graf are on sale at FCP Euro, for $50.24. This is a "clearance" price.

    Not a bad opportunity to get a decent aftermarket quality pump at a decent price. Looks like it comes with appropriate gaskets, as well.

    For reference, AutohauZ is selling this same pump for $79.13, and the MB list price for it is $279.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    Thanks Gerry. Please let us know more about your process. How is it that you came to know that FCP Euro is offering a clearance price on the GRAF water pump? Do you have some web crawler that somehow extracts 124 part numbers from WIS or something?

    Or some other type of system that causes you to look for water pump deals on a daily basis? I am really amazed that you somehow randomly discovered this.

    Or perhaps you look for water pumps because you can't bring yourself to slap "PORSCHE" emblems (air-cooled) emblems on your wasserpumper?

    FWIW, I stick w/ the Genuine pumps. If you do go aftermarket take the time to check the back spacing of the impeller to the housing. I find it varies quite a bit from pump to pump. Most are in spec but Some are not and that can lead to some nasty frustration when you put a new pump in and temps do weird things subsequently.

    oh, you'll want to have a hydraulic press around to squeeze that impeller down..levering it up can be a bit tricky..just try to get a Solid purchase on two sides when raising it up.

    How does this GRAF pump look wrt the back spacing of the impeller to the housing? I couldn't resist the sale.
    Note that the price @ FCP Euro is back up now.

    I can't put my feeler gauge into the picture so it's kinda hard for me to say.....to say it's a fine adjustment would be an understatement.
    Spec is in the service manual, don't have it in front of me right this moment.
