560SL Possible Fuel Filter Problem ?

I have a 89 560SL. For the last few months I have had problems off and on starting it. Once it is started, no problems at all but after it is warmed up and I shut it off....It may not start again for several minutes or hours. The engine turns over and try's to catch but never does until after it sits awhile. It sounds like it is not getting enough fuel. I am starting to narrow my focus down to the fuel line or a fuel filter. I really didn't put a priority on the issue since it was winter but....summer is right around the corner and Myrtle Beach is starting to call me... Anyone have any other thoughts or suggestions on what the issue could be ???
