      The most straight forward solution going from diesel to gas would be to find a donor car and grab the whole wiring harness along with the fuel system.

      Personally I think 30 wt oil is a bit light for the old watercooled blocks. 15w-40 or 20w-50 is probably what you should have been running. What type of oil filter did you have on there?

      The real question is how long do you plan on keeping the car? If your in it for the long haul you can easily spend upwards of $4000 on regular keep up items for a car that is 23 years old.
