That's a totally different pump on the 90.  I wonder
if Bosch moved production of that unit as well?  Do
you remember where yours was made?  It says it on the
box, but many people don't bother to look at this.  I
also look at the label to trace the humorous hierarchy
from the last round of corporate buyouts.  Clutch
slave and master made by FTE a small company in some
rural German hamlet.  Owned by FAG.  Owned by Dana.
