Question A/C expansion valve

Does anyone know where I can get a new A/C expansion valve for my 1973 280SEL 4.5? Mercedes part number is 1088350272. I've found one that looks similar (part number 1158350072) but appears to have an extra connector. Could I use this and clamp off the extra piece if cannot find the correct part?

I just replaced mine through the local AC guys. Have you looked throughout the web yet? My favorite is www.adsitco.com, and sometimes eBay hands me a piece of luck or two ...

The 1158350072 is different, and the 1088350272 appears to be NLA. You may want to try contacting the Classic Center to see what they have to say about it.
