Brakes problem
1989 Mercedes Benz 420sel V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 147000 miles

My 1989 420SEL M/B has a brake fluid leak on one of the front calipers.
1. Can I get by with replacing the leaking caliper, or will I need to replace both front calipers at the same time?
2. Do I need to " prime" the caliper before installing or can I just simply bleed until all the air is gone?
3. Any special tools, like a suction pump to bleed the system?

You can replace just the faulty caliper. Bleed the system after installing it. You can manually bleed the system, no need for pressure pump.
