Can these "1976-80 450sel 6.9" specific brake lines also be used on my 1979 300SD?

I know its a late response, but they appear to have the proper end fittings, m10 (or whatever) on one side and an m10 banjo on the other. I'd highly doubt it if there were any differences in the hydraulic connections that were specific to the 6.9...

That being said, I used some Earl's adapter fittings and -3 AN lines on both my 123 and 124 setups, which ended up being comparable in price, but with the added benefit of using standard premade AN lines that can be replaced much cheaper if it ever becomes necessary to do so (quite unlikely with such nicely made lines)...
W123 Mods: 4 speed ** AN braided hoses/lines almost everywhere ** powder coated valve cover ** manual climate control ** better stereo ** '85 Kalitucky intake ** manual windows & full tint ** Euro headlights retrofit w/bixenon projectors ** 4 brake light mod ** Vogtland 50mm drop front & Lesjofors S600 drop rear springs ** 16" rims ** late w126 brake spindles, rotors & calipers ** full suspension rehab ** Bilstein HDs ** AL129X alternator & 1/0 starter and charging cables ** 300GD clutch/flywheel ** AFCO 80103N radiator & Earl's 41610 oil cooler ** custom block-off plate, remote oil filter & t-stat ** MW IP w/ tomnik's 6.5mm 'Holly' elements **

S124 Mods: 400E Rear subframe ** SL600 Brakes ** Late 300E 210mm diff ** SLK230 6 speed ** 17" CLK rims ** Vented RF Fender ** Facelift Hood, Headlights, and Lower Cladding **

The 6.9 has a anti squat rear end. a lot of W116's didn't have this rear end and use a shorter brake hose. Just make sure the hose isn't too tight.
