Cam oiler tubes

While putting the M117 back together on my '73 450SEL I noticed that the new plastic bits for the oiler tubes fit more loosely than the originals; this concerned me so much that I just put the old (tighter) ones back. Did Mercedes supercede an early smaller cam oiler tube with a later bigger one on the M117?

you likely received the later style which are bigger

smaller diameter are mb # 116-180-00-84 early models
larger diameter are mb# 116-180-01-84 later models

Will the newer tubes work on the earlier engine?
