1995 7.3L not cranking
So i replaced injector O rings went ahead put them back in i went to crank it over i got 3 hard cranks and then it stopped cranking i took the glow plugs out and cranked it manually till all the diesel came out i heard if u let the injectors drain all the diesel in itll hydro lock it so i did all that then went to start it i get a click every time i go and turn the key so i got the starter tested it was dead so i got a new starter $200 from oriellys hooked it up same stuff happened click every time i went to jump it off a solenoid on the body and it doesnt even arch or spark when u touch the 2 bolts together with a screwdriver so im lost id love to get this truck to start it was running 2 weeks ago the injectors were leaking oil past the O rings.

You had better figure out why your injector(s) are leaking before you throw $$$ at the starter. I would replace all of them with re-manufactured ones and replace the starter.
