78 450 SL Fuel Questions

One of the fuel lines by the fuel pump just sprung a leak. In looking through the service manual, it mentions a conversion (123-470-05-93) to different plumbing starting in 79. The question: is it worth it to install the conversion, and if so, where is it available - or should I just replace the line? The car has been a difficult starter since I've owned it (2 yrs) - seems to have to crank a long time - then runs OK
