new 2 this

Hello there, I've got a question about a 300e that I just purchased. It is a 1987 with just over 15,000 miles, yes 15,000. With that the problems are the usual with cars that have sat for a long time. I've removed and cleaned the fuel tank, changed the filter X2 replaced one of the fuel pumps and run a little bit of Sea foam through the system. The car starts right up then instantly goes VERY RICH on the fuel mixture, it is so rich that the pluggs are almost dripping when pulled. When the car is run up to 4000 RPM it sounds great (all fluids have been changed X2). It won't idle and simply stalls if left at an idle. I'm not very well versed with the CIS mechanical fuel Injection so any input/suggsdtions would be greatly appreciated. New to Benz but do look forward to getting this going and enjoying a very well built auto. Thanks.
