Well- I could not really do what you suggested.
It would be easier to clean the injectors if the engine was running.
So I went a different direction.
I would turn on the key just enough to pump gas into the filter.
And when the lines were primed,
We tried to start the car.
I rev my car to help the battery on my friends car.
It almost starts- but not quite.
I have been busy,
But next I am going to look at the plugs.
Still working on it-
Going very slow.
Just towed it to my house-
We changed the spark plugs.
The car started right up.
I checked the oil.
It is about one quart over full.
I guess I am going to have to drain some oil out before I advise her to drive it.
One of the valves is tapping pretty bad.
Other than that it sounds good to me.
I have reason to believe that it has overheated occasionally because the fans do not work, even when I try direct power.
And, there is a leak somewhere from the front left corner of the car.
It is not the radiator(s).
I suppose it could be the water pump?
