    There are 3 small drain plugs at the bottom under the exh manifold. See if you can access them to remove water from the crankcae.

    You really want that water warmed up so that it will evaporate and get off those bearings down below. The new oil/fuel will also displace the water hiding in those nooks and crannies.

    You know, I had one I just couldn't run for a few days so I filled the cases with oil after fogging the upper end. It ran for years after that...a lost oil line finally killed that engine.
    When I got it home I drained the oil/water goop into the hull and let it drain into buckets through the bilge.

    Pouring oil won't circulate it. you need to crank it a bit. But with the heads on, you run risk of hydrolocking it.
