re: piersburg fuel pumps, autohaus, MB, other sellers... I replaced what I think is the same fuel pump in my 63 220S. I went through 3 fuel pumps from Autohaus and others and they all leaked. I finally bought one from the Classic Center that looks exactly the same and it doesn't leak. I have no explanation for this, but it is not inconsistent with others who have reported weaping fuel pumps that are new.
