1982 380sec idle/restart problems

Just started working on a 1982 380sec. 1st MB and couldn't be more ready to get it on the road.

This car has been sitting for a years, currently the cars starts right up, runs rough, won't idle (i have to keep my foot on the gas to keep it running). Once the MB cuts off, the car will not re-start. After it sit for a few hours it will start again.

I have replaced the spark plugs, battery, fuel pump, fuel relay, fuel filter, and cleaned the fuel tank strainer.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
