Question vaccum diaphram

I have a 85 300CD I'm restoring. I saw a site that sells repair kits (diaphrams) for vaccum valves used on MB but can't find it now. I also want to replace 3,4 way vaccum connectors while I have the dash pulled. Can ayone give me the site where these may be purchased?

A word to the wise:

You can buy the diaphragms for the single pods at Autolux and they will work just fine. The pods for the dual diaphragms will not work (in the large end) because they fit over the top of the existing unit and the travel is restricted. The replacement diaphragm is quite different than the factory diaphragm. So, buy the new one for the duals.

While purchasing from various online retailers is your right and privlege, there is a certain lack of common courtesy to advertise the fact in the house of another retailer who provides you with free banwidth to solve the multitude of problems that you have with your vehicle.
