swapping injectors in the truck, pulling glow plugs

this is my first time doing it like this.

i pulled glow plugs and installed injectors and hooked up the injectors and unplugged cps. i crancked it over and it sounded as i was only spinning the starter.

is that how its supposed to sound since its loosing compression outa the glow plug holes?


Thanks

Yeah I would think so.

yeaup, sounds really funny when you are doing that. Glance out your window while you are doing this and you can see the fan turning, which is telling you the motor is indeed turning over.

Unless they are reasonably new I would replace the glow plugs since they are out and relatively cheap.

Re: swapping injectors in the truck, pulling glow plugs

They should be fine but if you have a multimeter it would be a good idea to check them. You can also hit them with 12 volt juice and you will know real quick if they are all working. Make sure you are not holding it by the tip. Those little suckers get really hot with in a few seconds. I would say 1 second and it would melt into your skin. Don;t ask.

Every time I pull my injectors I pull the GP's, and yes, when you crank it over it sounds like it's only the starter going.
