Hey Guys...

I pulled my injectors and sent them off... I forgot to purge the cylinders! I cleared the injector cups with a syringe, is that okay? I don't want to hydrolock. What are the chances? Can I completely drain the system? Thanks...

Also... I didn't pull the oil plugs because I stripped one and I didn't want to strip the others... I pulled them yesterday, could I get a buddies injectors and purge the cylinders? Can I purge the cylinders without the injectors in there?

Dude , your stressing out over nothing. All you have to do is pull the glow plugs out and roll the engine over to "purge" the cylinders. Done.

Yes. But do I need to have the injectors to do that? I don't have my injectors. I sent them out

When you get them back install them. When your ready to put your valve covers back on take your glow plugs out and roll the engine over on the starter. Make sure you set the covers in place so not to get oil and fuel all over the place.
After its all together and running, get it up to temp then change the oil. That's it , enjoy your new power!

Make sure that when u set your valve covers back on, actually bolt them down as if u just sit them on there, you will still get oil everywhere
