    Motor will not turn over

    Hey guys, today my through hull seal failed on me and caused my ski to fill with water. I am back at my garage and have siphoned all the water out of my motor and took my intake apart to make sure all the water is out of the intake.

    I put the key in and everything looks good for it to start but when I push the start button nothing happens. Anyone know what I can look at to troubleshoot this? Its like the start button does not work at all.

    How does the oil look, any water in oil?
    Aren't you supposed to cycle the engine with no plugs to clear any water in the cylinders? See post no. 23 here:

    Be advised; multiple oil changes may be required!

    "pull the plugs and crank the engine over to see if water shoots out of the head (plug holes). If it does, you will need to pull the tubing off the SC and pull the manifold to get all of the water out so that the ski will start."

    I sunk my motor and had to take everything apart, intercooler, intake and all the pipes. If you can get the water and all moisture out ASAP you have a better chance of saving it.Change the oil and crank the motor for 30 seconds (5 times) then change it again, Now start the motor on the hose and let it run for 5 mins, change oil again. Do this 4-5 times and this is assuming that you already got all the water out of the cylinders,intake,intercooler and pipes. Once you get this done get the ski back to the water as soon as you can a ride it, you need to get the motor up to operating temp to burn ALL of the moisture out otherwise RUST will start and that will be your motor's cancer!

    I have not cranked the motor yet.

    I have changed the oil a few times already and I have pulled the SC/IC out and got all the water out of that area.

    I already have the plugs out and sprayed fogging oil into all 3 cylinders.

    I want to crank the motor over but cant as the engine will not turn over.

    The battery has plenty of power as the bilge pump still works fine and so do all the guages.

    The ski is acting like the start button does not work. There is some kind of electrical problem now and dont know where to look.

    Any ideas guys?

    Try to jump the two terminals on the starter relay with a pair of insulated pliers to see it the starter works.

    Follow the big positive cable from the battery. It will lead you right to it... Ron
