Yes you can flush the engine with diesel once its back together.
Just make sure you get all the diesel back out.

Once your pour diesel in the engine, are you able to start the engine?

I heard you are able to put half oil half diesel into your engine and run it for a while to clean it before an oil change.

I haven't done it, is it possible?

Re: How to clean bird shit

Yes after i did my head gasket, i dropped the oil, put in 5lt of Diesel and ran the motor for 5 mins to bring it up to temp.
Then i dropped the diesel, put in 5lt or cheap oil, ran that for f mins and around the block.
then i dropped that replaced the oil filter and put my good oil in.
Never had any problems.
