I have similar problem with my 260E. When I bleed fuel lines , on top of the fuel distributor , it helps , but for a while.

Make sure you have no vacuum leak at the injectors seal(spray Carb cleaner while the engine is idle to see if engine noise changes, if so then you have a leak at that injector). Also there is a small mesh at the end of the fuel line going to the distibutor. It could be dirty.
