hello, new to mercs with questions

so i picked up a 79' 280CE. seems to be in great condition aside from needing a serious tune-up. i've owned many VWs so i'm farmiliar with bosch injection. however it seems like the injection needs some tuning to smooth out the acceleration and idle. any tips would help. i'm also having trouble sourcing maintanance parts such as filters and a few other things. any good websites? any common problems with W123s? i'd just like to get it running good for now then i plan on either swapping a deisel, or sourcing a manual tranny and doing some flow mods to the gasser.. i've also noticed a few cars on the net with a BBS front spoiler.. hard to find? has anybody replicated one? any help will be appreciated. help point me in the right direction please

Come on down to the W123 forum. We can help you better there.

Though, I would fix up the 2.8L M110 engine instead of swapping a diesel in there, you don't see too many gas powered W123s in the United States anymore.
