BE CAREFUL! Does the engine crank? ** IF it doesn't, the air intake may have sucked up water and locked the compression cylinders hydrolically. IF it doesn't crank, pull the plugs out and try to crank the engine so that it pumps out the water. Replace the plugs and try to start again.** **IF it does, it just may need to dry out.**
