1980 280SE needing help with fuel issues

Hello from Boise Idaho
I am new to this site. I have recently purchased a 1980 280SE which has sat for several years and so the fuel system is pretty much in need of a thorough rebuild.

The car will run if fuel is put into the air flow sensor, yet stalls out once it has been used.

I have cleaned the fuel tank, accumulator, replaced fuel pump and filter. Mehcanic says the Fuel distributor needs to be replaced, yet there is fuel at all cylinders.
