Looking for gaskets and seals

I finally decided to repair the leaks in the engine and transmission of my 1970 280 SE Coupe (M130 engine). Does anybody know where I can get gaskets and seals for the engine, gear box, steering box and steering pump? I will be visiting the States by the end of July and could have them delivered to a friends address. Thanks in advance for your help.

Engine - I don't know - Mercedes?
Gear box - manual or automatic? Mercedes? If automatic, are you having the transmission rebuilt?
Steering box - I have not heard of this leaking but often they wear with age. Kind of a problem if there is any slop in the steering
Steering pump - getting the pulley off is difficult. Replacing the pump is easy after that. I think autohausaz.com has a replacement pump and maybe the replacement gaskets if you just want that.

Sounds like a lot of work!

FMPH,

Seals are listed by size (bore, shaft size, thickness) and are available from any well stocked bering supplier.

Simple gaskets are easily made from bulk gasket material that is readily available in a variety of thicknesses.

I'm new to Mercedes but I've already discovered 2 things. Anything listed as specifically for Mercedes has an eye popping price but there are interchanges available that fit perfectly. For example I discovered by looking through a brake parts catalog that a 1987-93 VW Fox front brake rubber line is a perfect fit on the 1961 190SL I'm working on.

Inexpensive non-Mercedes parts also are available to rebuild the master cylinder and wheel cylinders.
