Okay, good.

So you've gotten it to run by just drippbling fuel in the intake. If that 
is true, then the ignition must be working. Is that correct? It's still 
probably a good idea to check the timing to make sure that it has a 
the best possible chance to start.

Turn the key ON and go to the engine. Depress the throttle cable. 
Do you hear a series of clicks? These would be the injectors 
clicking in response to the changing throttle valve position. You can 
actually put your hand on the injectors while you do this and you 
can feel them click. When you do this you will only feel 2 injectors 
click. If you turn the engine over with the started you may get the 
engine into a different position where a different pair will fire. Do this 
until you satisfy yourself that all 4 are working.

If someone cranks the starter you MAY be able to hear these 
same kinds of clicks without moving the throttle valve. Can you 
hear, or feel, these?
