Replaced the way old and leaking injector return hoses. Finally found a use for the Gear Wrench hose pliers set I bought a few years back, made it so much easier! Also changed both fuel filters and confirmed that the battery is toast. Yesterday I replaced the sliding thing in the passenger rear window. And kind of successfully rebuilt the fuel level sending unit. Both resistance wires were broken and balled up around the float and the copper wire was broken off at the terminal. I made a splint for the broken copper strip for the copper wire and replaced both resistance wires. It sometimes is close to spec but other times it seems like its an open circuit. After sitting in the tank over night, it reads kinda close to whats in the tank and isn't jumping around so maybe it just needed a soak in some diesel.
