300D Air in fuel lines, won't start

I have an air leak somewhere in the fuel lines of my 1985 300D. I can get the car started if I crack the injectors and bleed out the air. And, it will start again a few hours later, but if I let it sit overnight it will not. How can I track down where the air is getting in?

Its been long time since I owned this engine, but you do have some clear tubings in the system? Try to figure out why they are clear?
If they are not clear anymore, now would be good time to replace them. Check all the hoses and seals at filter.
