Engine Seized

Ok so a couple weeks ago the truck started to idle really rough and seemed as if a cylinder wasnt firing so after some troubleshooting i replaced the injector in the #1 cylinder and the problems were gone and the truck ran great. The other day i drove the truck to work and it ran fine all the way there but started to smoke just before i pulled in and as i was parking it was smoking a fair amount. I shut the truck down then turned it back on and it was billowing smoke and then began to knock so i shut if off.
A few hours later i went back out to the truck and when i attempted to start it the engine began to turn over then stopped and wouldnt go any farther. The engine seemed seized. So i had the truck towed home and pulled the number 1 injector again and then turned the engine over by hand and it seemed to rotate fine. There was no fluid inside the cylinder.
So my question is what should my next step be? I was planning on either getting a compression test set or putting the injector back in and seeing if it will fire up.

Edit: Also the dipstick smells like pure diesel fuel

I checked the temp on each exhaust manifold after warm up and the number 1 cylinder fails to warm up but that's where the new injector is. There isn't any other fluid in the degas bottle. It has 250,000 miles

Sounds like you got a bad injector, or the engine hyrolocked and the rod bent and there is not enough compression to start the combustion process. Whats the compression on #1?

Maybe when the injector was replaced or went bad the injector sleeve was damaged. Is there any signs of diesel fuel in the coolant bottle.
Its that or you will have to pull the vc off really quick and yank the glow plug.
Turn over the engine and see what comes out?

Yeah, it sounds like the injector stuck open and flooded the cylinder. In doing so the engine hydrolocked and either bent a rond or knocked out the injector. As the previous gentleman has mentioned pull your valve cover and have someone turn the engine over with the key from inside of the truck and see if oil is spurting out of the ejection spout on the injector. Please keep body parts away from belts, fans and other moving parts. In there is no oil the injector is not firing. Just becuase the injector clicks and the solenoid is working does not mean the injector is firing.

Nothing came out of the cylinder when I pulled the injector. Also with watching for oil coming out of the the injector should the UVCH be plugged in when I try that?

Yes, if the injector is not pluged in then it will not fire. All eletrical connections must be intact.
