No matter what you do you will have drainage into the cylinder. Pull the plugs inside the VC area (not the ones in the valley or the ends of the head). Drain as much as will come out. Fuel, like the HPO, is stored above the injector so draining it will only remove a little of what is there. What you are really doing by "draining the system" is relieving the pressure built up on the injectors. This pressure is what would drain more than normal fluid into your hole.
So relieve the pressures, pull the injector, clean the cup as best you can but do not use a cotton rag to check for loose old injector parts (these parts are machine cut which would pull/tear the rag leaving tufts in the cup, I use shotgun swabs crumpled on a long needle nose pliers), lub/install/lube again the new injector and o-rings, install injector, torque, pull glowplug, pull fuse 22, throw a heavy rag (wifes' beach towel) over the glowplug port bump the starter a couple times till the cylinder is clear, install glowplug and start the truck. She will smoke for a while, this is normal as the cylinder and manifold are going to be holding some of the spilled oil in them.
