Throw another diesel and a set of jumpers to each battery on it, let it charge for 15-20 mins, give it a shot of starting fluid (small shot) and cycle the glow plugs a few times. I dealt with this on my E99 when I got it, took me a day or so to get it started.

pull the glow plugs then try to turn it over, if you have a cyl with fluid in it you will wreck the motor pulling it down the road. btw breaker bar is how I found Ouch's motor was hydrolocked

Re: 96 7.3 ps motors stuck

I would not spray starter fluid then cycle the glow plugs as noted above....if you decide to use starter fluid have the starter turning engine then apply at same time. What do you mean the starter slips?

Think it's a 22mm socket and breaker bar on the crank to manually roll it over as noted above...first.

I would take the glow plugs out and try to turn it over with the starter. That will blow all the crap out of there.

Re: 96 7.3 ps motors stuck

with the "starter slipping" makes me sound like it is not engaging. if the starter is not engaging I bet there is some rust on the end of the shaft not letting the gear get to the end or like something that has sat around here in the summer probably has a dirt dobber nest in it.
