1979 300sd door locks dead

After searching the forums, I could not find the answer. When I pull the handles from the outside, two of the doors will not open even though they are unlocked. They open from the inside. I took the whole lock assembly out of the door and it looks like the "puller" from the outside will not move the metal "stopper" out of the way when the outside handle is pulled.(holding the latch in place) It works when the inside handle is pulled. I adjusted the outside handle by the screw and it seems the problem in in the lock mechanism itself. Do I replace the whole mechanism? I cannot find one online. Suggestions? And thanks.
