Injector Install

Hey guys I'm going to be installing my new injectors tomorrow and was wondering if there are any hints or tips or even links to write ups/ videos that may help things go smoother. I did glow plugs last year so I have had the valve covers off before also...

What are the 2 allen head plugs that you pull for? and Is the best way to get the oil out of the heads just to pull the glow plugs and turn the truck over for a little while?
oh and also when I install the new injectors I just dip them in oil before i put them in?

thanks in advance

Sure you can crank the engine over with the glow plugs out to get the oil out, but,, Even if you turn it over by hand it's going to make one hell of a mess.
At the very least, put the valve covers back on to help contain the mess. If possible, use some method to suck the oil out. I use a home built vacuum reservoir, powered by the vacuum pump i use for air conditioning work.

1/4 inch hose that is used for swamp coolers and such, fits right though the injector tip hole so you can get at the oil collected in the cylinder and piston cup. Sucking directly into your shop vac would ruin your vac filter. However the shop vac would work great to put a suction on a clear glass jug or similar, then extend the 1/4 " hose from that container. make sense?
That way you can dump out your collected fluid from the jug and not gunk up the shop vac.

+1 on the shop vac it won't hurt it I've done it and a lot worse as is cleaning out clogged up 4" sewage pipes many times. Trust me that is a lot worse than a little oil in there it all washes out in the end hense the term "wet/dry vac"I
