No clue where to turn for 85 500SEL (wont start)

this is about my 1985 euro spec 500SEL. she's been sitting in my driveway for about 3 months... i noticed she had problems starting, ie long time turning over before any spark for a little bit. sometimes she would fire right up, other times it would take a few seconds longer. one day, she just kept cranking and never did start. she has a half tank of gas... my first guess would be a fuel pump, but Im not sure. Anyone have ideas? So sad, becuse she's immaculate... except that she wont start I'd appreciate ANY ideas.

Fuel pump relay perhaps or dirty EHA

Definately check the contacts from the fuel pump relay plug and pins on the FP relay. Sometimes corrosion sets in and makes for a dirty contact.

3 months sitting--fuel could be bad.
