You might try calling Rick at www.importpartsspec.com.

He used to rebuild these things by the truckload, but last I heard he  
ran out of the bearings and did not want to buy more because he had to  
get a big quantity, and demand has fallen off sharply for these things.
If he can not rebuild yours though, he could get you one from  
somewhere else.  He is a true wizard with German parts.  Nice guy too.
(btw, If it takes a bribe to get him to rebuild your pump, he likes  
Balvenie 12 scotch...)
