560 SL Fuel Problem

My 1987 560 SL is in an indie shop for a slight stumble. The mechanic notes that 3 cylinders appear to be running slightly lean and, after checking compression (ok), injectors (new), ignition system (ok), has conluded that it is a problem with the fuel distributer. Has any one had experience with this type of problem? Also, there's a 1985 380 SE fuel distributer for sale on e-bay. Would it fit this engine?

1986 560SEC: 150,000 miles, runs great, but I've got to sell it (too many cars for one man)
1987 560SL: 122,000 miles, used to run poorly, now (thanks to forum), runs great!
1997 GMC Jimmy: Turned out to be a turkey.
1989 T-Bird Super Coupe: 150,000 miles, still runs great. Ford got it right.
