WTB: fuel distributor for 560SEL

I have a 1989 560SEL with a leaky fuel distributor.

Would like to buy one from a forum member if possible.

Please PM me if you have one for sale or trade.

I know I'm too late but did you already replace the seal under the distributor? or is it leaking from the seam?

It was leaking from the black square section that is attached to the right of the distributor. Is that the seam?

Did you try replacing the seals to the EHA (the little black box)?? They're available for a coupe $$ at most and a lot of the time that stops the leaking.
