first benz fuel issues???

just picked up this car today. the p/o went blind 10 yrs ago and had not started since then. he started it up before I got there (w 10 yr old fuel) and it seemed to run fine. ran it down the rd. ran well.
I bought the car and drove 1 mile to gas station. filled up and it wouldn't start. tried and tried, finally started but died as soon as I put in reverse.
got the car towed hm. it started again after a while but would not idle. im hoping its the fuel lift pump. do they work intermitantly sometimes?

pulled fuel line from the rail and there is no fuel pressure to the rail when I crank it over
