1996 7.3 glowplug problems

OK, based of the info I have got from my father in a state away, he is re o-ringing the injectors on his dads truck. Not sure which cylinder it was but one of the glow plugs was seized into the head. He mentioned that the glow plug spun forever but would not back out. Come to find out, he said the glow plug separated in two. The cap for it came off. How do we go about getting the bottom half out? Thanks in advance guys

Start spraying glow plug that is stuck with PB Blaster. Sometimes if you crank over engine the compression will shoot it out- WARNING! Put a piece of plywood over it because it will come out like a bullet. If that doesn't work use needle nose pliers and vice grips to grab onto plug and start wiggling and twisting it to break it free. I also used a long 1/4 drive extension and tapped lightly on the plug to break it free. PATIENCE is your friend. This isn't a 5 minute job. I had 1 fall down onto the piston. I got it out by going through the injector hole with a pocket magnet.

Oops, I was thinking that you ment that the part the sits inside the cylinder came off the assembly and fell into the cylinder.

Yeah, I got bored. My grandfather got it out, not sure how he did but I'll post it when I find out.
