Cylinder Purge

I have removed all 8 injectors on my 2005 6.0. I am about to reinstall and I need to purge the cylinders of oil that drained in from the HOPR when it was removed. I began removing glowplugs but stopped after removing only 2 glowplug caps because I felt I was going to damage the hard plastic caps or the wire harness. They are extremely difficult to remove. Do I really need to remove glowplugs to purge the cylinder? Is there a tool to clamp on to the lip of the glowplug cap? I would greatly appreciate any help.

There is a tool for removing that glowplug cap, but I dont know how oil got in the cylinders, when I did mine i had drained the oil out of the pain, then pulled the oil spider on top of the injectors and all the oil drained into the pan through the drain back holes in the head. I didnt have anything in the cylinders, but I suppose its possible. Hopefully someone else will chime in with their thoughts.

There is no reason to worry about purging the cylinders on a 6.0 the oil does not drain into the cylinders and the little amount of fuel that drains in will not hurt anything.
The 7.3 is a different story though.

I just did mine.
0 oil or fuel. I even tried a vet supply surynge and 1/4 " tube down into the cyl just in case.....nothing.
I did my glow plugs at the same time, I had to bump them from inside the valve cover with a flat screwdriver the first time. now you can just pull them firmly and they pop out.
the cap is no big deal, but be carful the wire is "cast" into the rubber.

DO, use a q-tip or some air to clean out the injector hold down bolt boss. I was fore warned and did find a little in one, but I also hosed everything under the cover with cleaner.
