Red face fuel hose,ejector to rail

Have a 1974 450 sl ,my ejectors have a short hose with two clamps connecting ejector to fuel rail.All of the replacement ejectors seem to have only a hose already connected to ejector and only one clamp.Question? can I only replace the short hoses on mine with out getting into trouble?looks like there is a inverted dished washer at the bottom of each hose. Have been looking for a picture of what this arrangement looks like but have't found one yet.

I run short hose with clamps on my 4.5. Just make sure you use injector hose and not regular fuel line

Ordinary clamps bite into the injectors rubber.
Recommended are the .F1 clamps.
Conti is one good brand of injection high pressure hoses.
