Will let you know what happens tomorrow.
You realize that a solar charged does not do much for charging overnight. It would help if you could get a full charge with an automatic charger overnight. A fast cranking speed is also important on that initial startup. It sounds like you are almost done. Did you bleed right at the injection pump
? Then the last place is right at the injectors, loosen the fittings one at the time until you see fuel
coming out. After starting watch for leaks for a while until you feel confident you have none.
