1981 280se problem :(

hey guys,
bought a 1981 280se the other week..
hadnt been started in a while.. soo the problems ive had so far are
-After it started it revved up to 5-6k revs.. and stayed there..
-Fuel pump wire insulation had burnt and wasnt working, so rewired, and put a switch on the dash..

can anyone please shed some light on why its revving so damn high on startup?

cheers jake
