1981 Mercedes D not accelerating

My 1981 300D will not accelerate. Engine mounts need to be replaced. I ran out of gas 2 days ago and but it started back up with a small clicking or knocking noise when driving. When driving today all acceleration has ceased.
When I push the accelerator the engine does not rev up.
Any ideas on what it might be?
