Hi every one!
I need help in re-staring my 1978 450 SL which I removed the gas in the tank due to leaking fuel hose between the filter and the fuel pump. Gas was drained two years ago and the car was stored in my garaged since then. I replaced the fuel hose, put gasoline in the tank and tried to re-start. When I put gas on the intake plenum (like carburator), it will fire but does not stay running. Do I need to bleed the fuel injectors? Where should I bleed the fuel system?
