Where can I find the replacement fuel lines from the tank to the front of the car, including fitting? Thanks

The lines are available from Niemöller cut to length, but it is going to be very expensive due to shipping from Germany.

I believe the part MB numbers are main line 187 470 01 64 and reserve line 187 470 01 65.

You could make them yourself.  The copper tubing is 6mm and the union nuts are A6 M14 x 1.5 DIN 7606 and cone ends (brazed) are B6 S DIN 7608.  You will need about 20 ft (610 cm) of tubing total for both lines.

They are 8 mm John. I use 5/16" cunifer. Works fine with the 8 mm cone ends.

Thanks for the correction Henry.  Good to know that the 8mm cone ends will work with the 5/16" cunifer tubing.
