Smile Hi Merc owners everywhere

I am a new member - 31/03/10 - based in Cardiff, South Wales, UK.
I won a 1992 SL500 which I love,it has a good history and 116k miles (6k of which I have done), owned since August '09
I plan to do some bits of servicing myself - oil and filter change (using Castrol Edge), cabin filter change, new steering damper and also fitting a new oil pressure switch as mine flicks about, I have had it checked and oil pressure is fine, definitely the switch. I have bought new switch now have to find out how to fit it!.
Have changed dizzy caps, rotor arms and plugs to try and cure "hunting" at idle, turned out it was a small split in rubber elbow of vacuum pipe at the front of the manifold, have taped it up as I can't find a supplier who just sells the rubber elbows as I dont fancy changing the whole pipe
Any help, ideas greatly appreciated
