I dropped a rod into cylinder 4 and ruined the head on that side. I've taken out the rod and the rocker and spring and disconnected the injector. Can I run on 7 cylinders? Would I be better to run on 6 for a time until I replace the engine? If so, what other cylinder should I disable?

This would be a very bad idea. The engine is balanced for eight cylinders. Removing one, or more, rods and pistons and then running it will destroy the engine. Even if it didn't destroy it would run like absolute crap.
