Exclamation hydrolock?? starter problem? new injector o rings, no crank.

I have a early 99 f250 224K
I purchased the truck knowing it needed injector o rings. I did the drivers side o rings no problem had the truck running after I put it back together. Then I did the passengers side which were more of a pain to get back in but I managed. Pulled glow plugs on the side I was working on and blew them out.

Now it will not crank very well, Yesterday I had it blowing some smoke until this happened. Now it cranks a little, starter grinds then pops out and runs free. I pulled the glow plugs on passengers side and still did the same thing. Could the drivers side be locked up some how?? or something else?

video of it cranking:

It's full . Starter grinds an dosnt want to turn the motor over. I will try pulling all glow plugs and see if it will crank. It cranks for a second then binds up/grinds then starter pops free and runs fast. Had starter removed and tested at orielly it was good.

Maybe its an iphone thing. Ill check later on pc

How many times did you turn it over with the glow plugs out? It takes a few revolutions to blow all the oil/fuel out. Be careful grinding on it to much. You'll bend a rod if theres still oil in it!!!

Put a breaker bar on the crank and see if you can spin it by hand.

ok, pulled plugs and it turned over fine oil gauge went up rpms moved. did it maybe 3 times about 5 seconds each.
Immediately put in plugs and grinding sound returned without any revolutions like in the beginning of video.
My guess is not enough power to start??- had 13V with multimeter at batteries and they are like 2 weeks old walmart brand. I guess I will bring them in to get checked. I had them on a trickle charger (1.5amp on board battery charger).

Sounds like broken tooth or starter disengaging while still turning (solenoid problem)

does not sound hydrolocked.

I had starter tested was good, it has a lifetime warrantee so it might just "break" some how if batteries test good.

What about the starter relay under the hood do those go bad??
