1965 220SE Fuel Injection Adjustment?

I recently purchased a 1965 220SE fuel injected model in really good condition. It took a couple of months to get everything cleaned up enough to get the car started. The only problem is the fuel injection system. I don't have the manual for this car, and I don't know how to adjust the linkage correctly. Right now it won't hold idle and it runs a bit rich, adjusting the timing does nothing to help this. If anyone knows anything about fuel injection on these cars then ANY help will be appreciated greatly. Thank you.

The idle speed is adjusted with an air bypass screw and a knurled knob on the back of the fuel injection pump. NEVER adjust the knurled knob with the engine running or it will really get screwed up. I can send you some info on tune-ups for your car.
