To make a long story short some numbnut over filled the oil in a small 4cyl by 3 or 4 quarts. There is so much oil in this engine that it looks lo me like it is filling cylinders as it tries to turn over. I have drained the oil and put the correct amount in and pulled the plugs and turned the engine over. A lot of oil was blown out but there is still so much oil in there that the plugs get fouled by cranking the engine over.

Anyone have a suggestion to get all this extra oil out with pulling the head? I have thought about rinsing the cylinders with gas and turning the engine over with the plugs out but I don't want to end up washing the walls.

A medium to large  (think cardiac) syringe with some flexible tubing will suction that stuff right on out of there.

Yeah a Mityvac on suction mode or other vacuum pump might work to suck it out.  Otherwise you may have to wash it out with a solvent of some sort.

This is going to suck no matter how I do it isn't it.
I am going to bitch slap the kid that did this when I see him.

Rubbing alcohol works good to flush, and whatever excess is left in the cylinders will evaporate over night usually. Squirt a bunch in through a flexible tube, and suck residual/oil out. I did this when I sucked a bunch of water into my motor after sinking the truck. Put plugs back in the next day and it fired right back up.

When I rolled my RC my left bank was oil locked. I removed all four plugs and turned it over (the engine, the RC was already "righted"  :p), and much to my surprise, it ran. In fact it shot oil all over me. Never had any issues after that.

Got the oil out and the car started. You should have seen the smoke. it looked like it was of fire for a good 20 minutes.
