1979 450 sl

I have 1979 450 sl. I am a novice at turning wrenches; but find satisfaction in accomplishing tasks myself. Here is my problem. I bought this car from a party who had it sitting in a garage for 8 years. I removed the fuel tank and cleaned it out. I replaced, with OEM parts, the fuel pump, fuel filter, tank fuel screen and all hoses. I have fuel to what I would call the fuel distributor where a carb would normally be. But; my car won't start or run still. If I put a little fuel in the air intake of the throttle body, it will start and run until it uses that fuel. I am convinced I am not getting fuel into the cylinders, yet I have fuel going to the lines which feed the injectors. HELP!!!!
