number of fuel pumps in 1987 560sl

I have a classical "hot start" problem and am planning to replace the fuel accumulator to see if that resolves it. If not, will plan to replace the fuel pump check valve(s?)..

Incidentally, a friend suggested replacing the fuel filter for this problem as the simplest approach, but it seems fuel restriction wold be present all the time, and worsen with increased demands, if that were the case.

I'd like to know how many fuel pumps are on this model.

This list is the best thing since sliced bread, for us non-mechanics.
