Mercedes 1973 Model 280 Vacuum Pump

I'm looking for a new or replacement vacuum pump housing. I have a 1973 280 w114.060. This vacuum pump mounts on the front of the CAM and has 2 hoses that run to the engine and I believe the brake booster. The housing cracked in half. I can find repair kits but not the entire housing. It's made from aluminum. Any help would be appreciated on who may carry this part

Thanks
Dave in Bristol, CT

You have a gas engine, so the engine does not need a vacuum pump. Please take some pics and post them. Check the EPC for your and look up the part.

He's talking about the auxiliary vacuum pump fitted to the cam tower on the early M110's.

What does a gas engine need a vacuum pump for?

The car was not accelerating and the brakes turned real hard Won't run without the pump.

Here are a couple of photos--e-mail me if you'd like higher-resolution ones. Seems as if the diaphragm is intact
