Anyone know where I can get these FI fittings? (pics) In a SERIOUS jam!!

I have a Euro 1981 280 Fuel Distributor (that I am putting into an american 280) and I need the fittings that connect the fuel lines to the top if the distributor. I ordered them from the dealer and got the one pictured in the top pic. I need the kind shown in the BOTTOM pic.
Measurements:
Nut is a 12mm. Total length is 22mm. Thread spacing is 1.0. Both ends are the same . (see pics)
Both ends are flared female (to fit the bubble flare on the end of the fuel line).
Can anybody help me out?!?!?! I need all six and I haven't been able to get any help from the dealer or find anything similar for automotive fittings anywhere !
Thanks!!

(they won't let me post the pics on two threads...)

Your best bet is to try Earls or Aeroquip and see if they have a fitting that will work, they have some incredible fittings that you will be surprised.

10mmx1.0 is a very common pitch, lots of Japanese cars maufacturers use this. You problem is that you need a flare on the base of each end.....

Other than that, try any local hydraulic repair shop....or you can have a new one made at any machine shop.

I do alot of custom automotive work and end getting alot of my custom fittings that cannot be sourced, just made.

Not sure if that helps you or not.

If you look at the picture I include, to item # 712. In one group of engines it is used 9 times which to me suggests it is also at the base of the injector lines which have a fitting shown but no ID.

The part number is 000 074 35 86. Is that the number you got from MB?

Steve:
I didn't get the part # from MB. My parts guy at the dealer knew exactly what I was talking about, found them in a heartbeat and had them shipped.... Of course they were the wrong ones, but they did fit the broken american FD that I started w/, which is why I think it is a euro thing..

The picture above is from european parts information. If you got wrong fittings from MB they should of had a number. If not order one of the number above and see if it works. They will be right for a number of engines.
