    Water in motor, help!

    Put the ski in water with one of the drain plugs loose, ended up loosing my car keys and had to wait for my buddy. as I was waiting someone on the dock goes, hey, your ski is sinking looked over and it a little low in the water. pulled it out and drained the engine bay, found one plug was completely missing.

    Engine wouldn't start and I didn't think it had water in it figured it was just the battery low from pumping all the extra water out. Wheni got home, I kept trying to start it and it would crank and then stop. decided to pull the plugs out. I pulled them out and cranked it, and a ton of water came out the top.

    What's the best thing to do from here, should I take it to the dealer? let it sit with the plugs out? I was in the ocean so it was saltwater, I hope I didn't fvck anything up.

    I had already spun the motor and that poured a good amount of water out. I just poured some of the 2 stroke oil down in the cylinders, how should I got about hand cranking it?

    I feel like an idiot, I should have known water had gotten into it.

    Dude, you're/it's done.

    First mistake was cranking it with the plugs in.

    Second is not getting it immediately running.

    It doesn't look good if you don't get it running soon and go out and run the piss out of it.

    if you didnt pump water back thru the intake your reeds hopehully with stood the hydro lock and if the thing didn't twist the crank or pop a piston crown via cranking with your plugs still in, you may have a chance to save it with out a teardown .. any which way ,do it now, before this ruins your crank and bearings..follow the tread LINK I posted above... he was able to get water out soon and ran it hard for a while to dry it out ... you just dont know till you try... otherwise, get as much of the water out ,by cranking it with the 'plugs out' and just plain fill the cylinders and case up to the pistons, with oil, leave the oil in dont crank it again,then take it to a dealer asap... tell em compleatly what you did and did not do as they will need to know what s been done to it right or wrong.. get to work

    JUst get it running and you should be fine. Key is to get the water out of the cylinders.

    Plugs in don't really affect anything, but could cause a bend rod if it was injesting water at high speeds.

    KEy - pump it out with the plugs out by cranking. add oil and start . Let it run for a while on the hose!

    Plugs..

    Cranking it with the plugs in is bad because...

    It could have hydraulicked...
    which could equal bent con-rods..??
    blown head gasket..??
    blown out front or rear crank oil seals..??(been there.!)

    For now forget about the above... you can worry about it later..!!

    You NEED to get that salt water out now..right now..!!

    So you need to spin it over in 5 sec bursts, with the spark plugs out..!!
    In between spinning it over wait 10 secs.. you don't need to add a fried starter to your woe's..

    After it seems no more water will come out.. pour a little oil down each plug hole when the piston is at bdc..
    use a long screwdriver in the plughole to push each piston to bottom dead centre..!!

    Then when theres oil down all three plug holes use the screwdriver,
    in alternate plugholes to turn the engine over..
    Do this for several engine revolutions..
    After this spin it over again.. watch out for the oil flying out the plugholes..
    Then get sparkplugs in it and fire it up..

    Get it on the hose and let it run...
    Remember start engine then turn on hose.. turn off hose then turn off engine..

    Good luck

    DO-NOT wait about with this DO IT NOW.. screw the neighbours..!!!
