5-6 full revolutions should be plenty. I will keep the injectors unplugged and crank the truck for about 5-10 seconds as well. I do this 2-3 times just for added assurance
there are write up on the procedure that can easily be found. I just put my 250/100's back in. Start to finish taking my sweet time only took 5,5 hrs. this includes cleanup, burning new tunes, getting fired up again, etc.
This is a quick run down of how I did it this time:
remove air intake and intercooler tubes.
disconnect big connector on driver side valve cover, removed ccv, pulled valve covers on both sides.
unplugged vc gasket and wires to gp's/injectors.
removed injector #8 and let drain. Sucked out injector cup
removed injectors 2, 4, 6 and glow plugs on drivers side. sucked out remaining fluid from cly8
put in new injectors on driver side
removed inj #7 and let drain, sucked out
removed inj 1,3,5
sucked out cyl 7
removed glow plugs on pass side and installed new injectors
put both vc gaskets and covers on and put in 1 bolt on each side.
1" socket on crank bolt and turned a good 5 fell revs, cranked with key/starter a couple times for 5-10sec's
pulled covers, cleaned off gps and reinstalled
hooked up gp/injector wiring, put everything back together.
pulled fill plug for hpop. added a good qt or so of oil.
with everything back together, cycled key a few times to let fuel refill the fuel rails. cranked for approx 5-10 sec's, stopped for approx 5 sec's, then cranked again for a few sec's till the truck fired up.( I find that if you do not add quite a bit of oil to the hpop you will have a harder time getting the truck to fire back up)
went for a test drive and to warm up the motor. Came back and changed the oil after warming up. You want to change the oil because fuel gets mixed with the oil during this procedure.
No issues and I can always get the truck to fire back up pretty quick. others have issues getting the truck started again. You also want to run the truck pretty hard for approx 25-30 miles to purge any air out of the system. If you do not do this, you will continue to have longer starts till the air get out. Best of luck
