need help please...!

I now have all my injector sleeves out of the truck, but when I took the first one out a whole bunch of coolant came gushing out and went right down into the cylinder. I need to get this out because I still need to save up for new injector orings and new sleeves so I don't want the engine sitting there with coolant on top of the pistons. I tried to jump the starter solenoid to purge it out (is that the best way?) but I can't get it to engage the flywheel, starter just spins. I know there is something to do with the small jumper wire but can't seem to figure it out. Can anyone help me out here, I'm having a rough time with this truck I don't like this repair at all. When tapping the old sleeves I guess my tap got crooked in one of the bores and it boogered up the top part (higher than where the sleeve sits down into) of the injector bore. I hope that doesn't mess anything up too bad. Advice please!! Thanks...

I think you can put a socket on your balancer bolt in the the center of the crank and turn the motor a little by hand, then your starter might catch.

It would probably be smart to turn it over by hand first anyway to get most of it out of there before you spin it with the starter.

I have read people do this when changing push rods or to initially get the fuel/oil out of the cylinders after changing injectors before they crank it with a remote starter switch or wire. (If they didn't drain the head using the plug which apparently is hard to get out.)

Towards the botton of this page is Dirk's post about doing the remote turn-over with a wire or switch, leaving the keys out of the ignition etc.

Thanks for the replies. I ended up figuring it out. I went under the truck to the solenoid on the starter and left everything attached, just jumped a small insulated wire from the large positive (held on with aligator clamp) to the small wire on the solenoid and touched it there a few times until no coolant shot out anymore.
