6.0 hydro locked. Pls help

I have a 04 6.0. I replaced the #5 injector in it and it ran fine for 2 weeks. Well one day why'll driving it hydro locked. I imediately pulled the injector I installed and found the copper o-ring broke in half. I replaced o-rings and put everything back together. Know my question. Can I start the truck and let the fuel burn out or do I need to pull the glow plug and pump it out? Pls someone that has done this let me know.

You can turn the crankshaft by hand with the use of a ratchet etc. If it turns completely at least two revolutions you are fine. Over time the fuel should leak through the ring gaps and drain into oil pan. But not always. I would be doing a oil change.

Did you blow out the bolt hole for the injector hold down bolt? They can fill with oil and the bolt will not go all the way down when torqueing.

Yes I did blow out the hold down holes. If I can rotate it 2 full times how long should I wait to change the oil? An hour after I run, or a couple days?

Is there more on the dipstick ?? If it is up I would change it, diesel is a poor lubricant.
