Question W108 4.5 vacuum system question

I'm looking to transfer back to CA in a couple months and pick up my car. I know that it has a vacuum leak somewhere. I know the reservoir is in the left front fender, and I know that the door locks are vacuum actuated, and that I need to replace two, maybe three of them.

Can anyone give any advice on how to track down leaks, and where the vacuum is originated? Is there a pump that I can rebuild?

And does anyone know where the vacuum actuator for the gas tank door is located?
