My 560 sel will only start if I dose it with fuel through the intake. Once started it will run by itself but only over 2000rpm.I have replaced both fuel pumps and fuel filter. Very little fuel and pressure out of fuel distributer at cranking rpm. Any help will be appreciated thank you.

Fuel injection or carb? Trace all fuel lines and hoses. If fuel injection, try to figure out if the injectors are bad. Run the vehicle, and disconnect each injector electrical connector one at a time and see if engine performance changes. When there is no change in behavior, then replace that injector. Does the engine idle rough or smooth? Does it run rough or smooth at 2000rpm?

Thanks Mate.I think I located the problem.The diaphragm in the fuel distributor has gone hard because of old fuel that has gone off.
