6.0 broke again how how to drain fuel from cylinders

2005 F350 6.0 diesel built in oct 2004 209,000 miles- my wiring harness shorted out and filled the cylinders with fuel and i need help if anyone knows the easyest way to drain the fuel out of the cylinders and i am needing to find a place to buy a harness, have had no luck with local diesel shops, salvage or internet search. other than the dealership theres was 850.00 and thats crazy since i have already spent 4500 in the last 13 months on this engine, doing all the work myself. its the large harness i have already replaced the injector harness any help would be greatly appriceated. and yes this truck is for sale for pay off!!!

I think you can pull the glow plugs and crank the engine over and it will blow out of the GP ports. I read this technique somewhere before. If someone knows different, chime in.

Yes, removing the glow plugs, and turning the engine over will blow the fuel/oil out of the glow plug hole. This is the procedure done during injector replacement.

Make sure you have a towel or rag over the hole or else it is a huge mess all over. and for 850 you might be able to get a running engine of ebay with a harness. Would be worth a look.

The GP's are not under the valve covers, they're on the exhaust side of the heads above the manifolds. The injectors are under the valve covers

What are you having to replace all these harnesses for? That seems strange to me

the injector harness had cracked plugs on the back of the ficm and would not hold conection with out wire ties around the ficm so i fixed it rite by replacing harness then the main harness rubed itself raw on a bolt becouse the tape that held the plastic clip to the wire harness detereated and came loose letting the harness vibrate on the bolt.
