I would say the most important thing I have heard is to make sure to get the most oil possible out of the #8 cylinder before reinstalling the injectors and/or glowplugs.

Make sure to purge all that oil, just keep the glow plugs out after the injectors are in and bolted down with no electrical hooked up and crank it over a few times.

I suggest pulling the oil galley plugs to avoid a ton of oil in the cylinders, just be sure to seat the allen bit.

Pretty much everything I covered in my write up

well i got them all done!! I love them (even though it was dark when i finished and very late so i couldnt play)

Pretty straight forward if you have the right tools!!! The correct extensions, sockets etc make all the difference in the world!!

Took me a solid 4-5 hrs of working time and about 8 overall including clean up and getting the truck started and ****
