Need fuel line for 1976 Merc 450 SL

Where is a good place to get 1976 Mercedes Parts? I need the Control pressure line that runs between the warming up governor and the pressure damper. BTW, could also use the pressure damper that actually fits the car. I was given one, but it will take same modification to make it work.

If you're looking for vacuum line, gas lines or rubber gas lines, AutoZone, Kraegan, Napa, et al all have the stuff you'd need. In these instances, you'd have to trim to fit probably, but fuel/vacuum lines are common to every car of the era.

Search the Internet but also check your dealer - everyone loves to hate them but they might be able to order your correct parts at a reasonable price. I have a '73 220D and have found my local MB dealer able to get just about anything often at a fair price, sometimes lower than asking for used on eBay and of course sometimes the most expensive. But you won't know until you ask them.
