Hard Start on 1988 2.3L 190E

I am having a hard start on my car after is has warmed up and then sits for just a few minutes.

I was told that the fuel distributor was probably the cause so I changed it. It did not solve the problem entirely, but car feels a bit quicker from a standing start. However, I still have a hard start.

Does anybody know if there is a pre-fuel pump inside the gas tank? I read that it could cause a hard start, but that was on a Volvo. Also, can your OVR be failing and still not cause your ABS light to go on?

It has been sugjested that I check the o-rings on the fuel injection units. Is that a possibility for a hard start?

Thank you in advance for any thoughts or advice.

It maybe your fuel pressure is low. I had this problem with my E320 (hot or cold engine). What I did was I turn my ignition on for about 5 to 10 seconds to have the fuel pump up gas and builds up fuel pressure. And boom the engine starts w/o even pressing on the gas. Next time replace your fuel filter or check the fuel pressure to make sure you are w/n the spec.
