    Unhappy Hull flooded and now I need help starting the Engine

    I was taking on water the other day due to a water intake tube coming loose. My ski was 3/4 submerged in the lake. We got it out with in 20min and released all of the water in the hull. We checked the pistons and they where good (no water inside). The ski revved a couple of times but never turned over. The pump came on to help the rest of the water out. I let it sit open in the sun for two days and tried to start it again. It sounds like it wants to turn over but it just won't start. What can I do to get it going so I don't have to take it to the shop? Thanks for the help.

    Too late dude... You needed to get the ski started THAT DAY and RUN THE PISS OUT OF IT.

    Now that its sat, rust will be setting up inside the engine on the crank and bearings. You're in a race with time.

    GET THAT SKI STARTED ASAP. Jumpstart it if you have to.

    Personally, I'd pull the plugs, and spin the engine over for about 20-30 seconds.

    Clean and dry off the plugs, reinstall them, attempt to start. After another 20-30 seconds, pull plugs again - dry them off, spin the engine over a few seconds without plugs, then reinstall plugs and attempt to start. Rinse and repeat.

    Got it started and found the water problem. Fixed everything, replaced plugs and battery, now runs great. Ran it strong for 2 straight days.
