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.
