Reviving an old 89 2.0 Si 4WS

Hey Everyone,

I have an 89 2.0Si that I want to bring back to life. As far as I know, it's been sitting for 6+ years. maybe close to 10.

I imagine the fuel is toast. Can I get away with just replacing the fuel filter? I am looking at this shop manual:

and I only see reference to one fuel filter. Are there two? I see this one:

I may need to replace the fuel pump as well.

Do I have to drain the tank or can I siphon it out and then add fresh fuel?

Do I need to clean/replace the lines too?

This car needs a lot of work. I'll post some pictures up soon. But it needs to have an engine rebuild, suspension rebuild, coolant leak sealed, A/C compressor replaced and freshening up of the interior.

You'll need to go through the WHOLE car. Get it on a lift if you can, check lines, drain all fluids and make sure the engine turns (get a breaker bar on the crankshaft bolt) to make sure its not seized. Take your time
