Try your google search in England and Europe, Many boats outfitted across the pond with MB engines. I got some perkins parts from an MB parts distributor from another euro cruising friend. Sorry I don't have the link for you. Most have had positive reviews on the MB engines..my Dad got 500k out of his 240 D engine...

Also, the primary fuel filter will be available at your local auto parts store, cross reference the OEM number, most likely FRAM will have a part number.

There may be a small copper compression washer that helps seat the injector. Check if there is one, some times they get smashed and don' t seat.

good luck!
