Did you pull the glowplugs to clear out the cylinders after changing the injectors? Or did you drain the HPOP system before removing the injectors? If not then you could be hydrolocked. One way to tell with out damage. Is you try to turn the engine over by hand. If you have a good size pipe wrench or a socket to fit the crankshaft pulley bolt. You should be able to turn the engine over by hand if not then it could be hydrolocked. If it is hydrolocked. Remove glowplugs and attempt to turn the engine over. I suugest you do this with the injectors disconnected so it will not start up. Also put the valve covers back on before attempting to turn the engine over. If it is hydrolocked and the glowplugs are removed. All that fluid in the cylinders will spray out of the glowplug holes.

You don't have to pull the glow plugs on the 6.0's when changing injectors. There is only a little bit of fuel that ends up in the cylinder. Use a 18mm wrench on the crank pulley and try turning over the engine so that the crank pulley is moving in a clockwise direction. If you can't turn it over with the wrench then you need to pull the glow plugs, crank it over with the starter and see what comes out. Where did you get the injectors from? It is possible that one stuck wide open and is causing your hydrolock.

No glow plugs means no compression. No compression means no ignition

Tell that to my 7.3L psd that fired up with glowplugs removed. I guess there was enough compression to fire it up.

Yes, a stuck injector will lock the engine. You need to pull the GP's, and spin it over. Keep an eye out to determine which cylinder is the culprit. Almost sounds as though the copper sealing washer wasn't seated, and the combustion gases melted the o-rings on the injector causing the cylinder to fill with either oil or fuel, or both! Wouldn't be the first time.

That does happen. It happened to me once. I forgot to torque one injector when I was replacing multiple injectors on the same bank. Mine ran long enough for me to test drive it 10 miles and the customer got 5 miles before it died on him.

What did you torque them to when you put them in?
