Just pulled apart my TD oil pump, and it has the 30mm gears, so if yours is the 
same, a 36mm pump might buy some more time. The only number I could find on 
the gear housing is 068A, so I guess it is the AN pump referred to in the EKTA. It 
appears that a new 36mm pump should drop right in, unless there is a difference in 
the way it connects with the vacuum pump in later models.
