Dashpot information please

Does anyone know if I have to have a vacuum dashpot specific to my 71 280S? They do not make them anymore and the rebuilt ones I can find are $200 and change? I am thinking I could convert a manual spring operated one if the care needs one. I can buy a manual dashpot for a later model US carfor $28 at Autozone

Given the simple nature of a vacuum dashpot, I'd imagine anything you can get to fit would work... I could be wrong...

...it also not a requirement in the dual carb setup... some models did not have them, it just helps to smooth the throttle when stopping and idling.
