Someone on here might be able to help but have you tried the W123 Forum?   Loads of decent info on there.....I will check my own files at home later but the straight-six single cam/carb combination is not the most common.

I have a W123 230E, which has a completely different fuel system to your 250. I’ve looked at the carburettor related information in a Haynes manual for 250/280 W123 but the photographs are not great.

If you haven’t already seen this info let me know and I will email you photos of the relevant pages.
