300E must pour gas into air horn to start, help

My 87 300E had this problem a few months ago and went away. It's back! The car won't start unless I pour raw gas into the air horn. It will then stall unless I keep it above 1500 rpm. (Fun to drive that way in traffic!). Car has 2 new fuel pumps as well as other equipment in the fuel system.
Suggestions are welcomed.
