The engine damage part of your story sounds fishey to me. I have never heard of a "too rich" mixture causing any engine damage. It will cause carbon build up, but damage? I think not. If the fuel was so rich as to "wash all the oil off the pistons and caused the rings to burn" I doubt it would run at all. You would have to have a serious flooding with all that fuel and things dont ignite when there is that much fuel.

I would replace the wiring harness first, and then test the engine and see what condition it is in. One step at a time.
I got too many cars!! Insurance eats me alive. Dave
