Odd.
The blowby smoke looks bad, but it passes the up-side-down oil cap test since the cap stays in place IMO.

Engine sounds healthy (listening on a computer) IMO.

Problem started after "rebuilding" injectors if I recall, could be a problem with the rebuild.

Disconnecting one at a time while running and monitoring the smoke level would be my next move.

I disconnected each of the 4 uvch plugs and that did not seem to make much diff. I'll pull each injector plug and see how that works. How long should it run unplugged to notice a difference?

Ok so I finally narrowed SOMETHING down. I think I had a cyl trying to hydro lock when k tried to start it to pull it in the garage. So I pulled the passenger glow plugs and bumped the starter. I got bright red coolant shooting out of the cyl 7 hole. So I pulled inj 1 3 5 7 (all passenger l) and I pressurized the degas bottle up to 15psi. I was filling the hole with coolant. So I def have either a bad cup, head gasket or head. Any thoughts to narrow it down?
Since I'm this deep in probably going to change the cyl 7 cup and repressurize the system. If she holds them I should know it's fixed. If not, it's pull the head time to see if it's a gasket or a crack.

I tried to to comp test but the Snapon tester won't thread into the hole. But I did pressure with up to 15psi and finally got the number 7 to start filling the cylinder. So now I'm gonna replace the cup and repressure it. Then it is either head gasket or cracked head

Sounds like a logical step. Could be the cup or a blown head gasket due to the coolant/fuel whatever leaking into that cylinder, especially if you said it "hydrolocked". Hoping it's not something bent.

I am getting coolant in the cylinder but I'm also getting something in my oil to make it chocolate milk. So bring that I can't see how a bad cup would cause coolant in the oil still seems like a bad head gasket or worse. I just wish there was a way to narrow it down.
