Thanks to all who helped out!!! Sincerely
I suspect that my idm connection was subpar and messing with it might have cleaned it up. Also, I cleared the dtc codes in forscan just before it worked. Also, I hadn't driven it much... Who knows really. Im getting the injector codes again but not the bank codes, 1293 and 1294. I imagine the inj codes will go away when it's warmed up and until I just bite the bullet and replace them outrightThats my issue. I never found the short, but its gone. My biggest worry is it may come back. My next time under there Im going to bend the 42 pin bracket up to keep the harness away from the valve cover.
It was your comment and some other similar threads that helped me realize the issue. Matthew from bitterroot said the generally the same thing about the oil side.So, the shim kit I did said to shim the armature plate .004 and the spacerplate .005, which eliminates the chance of contact and brings us back to specs-ish. I have zero codes and issues from doing this, and the measurements I got were just over .004 at the armature plate afterward. My issues afterward were wiring related.
It's possible that your injectors are too worn for the shims to work, as you discuss with the lateral play portion.
