I do not know if you are aware but, the mentality here in the USA is to replace the whole defective part instead of fixing the part. Here, labor is usually the most expensive part in a repair. This is specially true in MB's. I recently replaced my fuel distributor with a used one, which I bought in e-bay (it works great). Rebuilt fuel distributors are over $400.
I know labor in south america is VERY cheap compared to the USA. My suggestion would be to try to find a BOSCH authorized repair facility and see if they can provide the part or maybe Steve Brotherton can help you out...
Good luck!
