Need 7.3 help asap

Ok need some help while changing my injectors I'm trying to clear the cylinders I sucked the cylinders out with a seringe and turned the motor by hand so after that was done I bumped to over with the key and I'm still getting a bunch of fuel coming out. Can somebody tell me where the fuel is coming from? No injectors in and the injector harness is out. I will say this doing one side at a time so I'm on passenger and driver is all hooked up still

Lol. Unhook your IDM plug on the driver side. Big square plug with 11mm bolt. That will kill the fuel pump.

It will, but you have to remove the plug anyway when you do the driver side.

Thats air in the oil system it will take about 45 of highway driving to get it bled out.
