1973 280C(W114) Throtle linkage

I was diving last night and the gas pedal went to ther floor with NO engine response. I looked at the linkage & the rubber bushing on the throttle shaft from the firewall to the carb seems to not work right. Is there somewhere to buy new linkage or shaft? Or is there a replacement throttle linkage that can replace this one?

I'm guessing you think of bushing no 79 ?? In this image...

It's not numbered in the 280C category, but in 250C category, it has a number:

1991 W140 400 SE - SOLD !!
1973 W115 200 -For sale as project.
