Cool I just replaced injectors & glow plugs .I NEED HELP

So I just replaced all the injectors and glow plugs on a 2000 7.3 ltr.

One big problem I forgot to blow out all fluids from the cylinders before I put it back together and the motor wont turn over do to hydro-lock.Can any one tell me if there is any way besides tearing it back down to get the fluids from the cylinders.

If I let it sit will they leak out?
Thanks for any help

Pull the valve covers.
Remove glow plugs.
Turn the engine over by hand 5-6 times, wait 5 minutes, turn 1-2 more times.
Replace glow plugs/valve covers/rest of parts.



Pray.
Pray that you didn't bend a rod.

If there is damage, hopefully you just bent a few push rods and not a connecting rod. Or maybe crack a few rockers.

You turned it by hand I hope. Probably best to pull the glow plugs and turn the eng. by hand/breaker bar. Pistons have a bowl shaped in the top of 'em that oil will just sit in until it's dealt with.

depends on how much oil/fuel filled the cylinder and at what point the piston is in the cylinder. If he turned the engine over with the starter.......
