    So out today running around today, the chop was heavy and a lot of large boat wake. I surfed down the back of a wave, another hit the port bow burying it. Over and turtled!  So what’s the first thing? Empty the fuel tank, drain the carburetor, take the spark plugs out, take off the covers to see the pistons use  air compressor to blow out to dry, what’s  next, call Dave?
    Thanks

    Agreed. And once it’s running, get it back on the boat and run it hard. It takes more time running than you think to clear the crank shaft bearings of every trace of water.

    Long live American manufacturing!

    Plugs out-
    Pull it over to get water out-
    Lube cylinders-
    Drain tank and carb-
    Dry out ignition and get spark.
    Get it running.
    “As soon as passable!!!!! ”
    Many will tell you to keep a motor
    submerged if you can’t get to it
    right away.

    Flywheel needs to come off.
    Dry out the ignition. If you have air us it.
    Once dry spark should reappear.

    Got a story for you mister Malliett.   When I was a pup my buddies and me were woods bike riders.  More than once we were running hard on spring woods rides and someone in our group would water out.  First thing we did was find a high spot of ground and pull out the spark plug.   Roll the bike upside down and turn the engine over until most of the water was out.  Then we pulled the ignition cover off and usually somebody would have a can of CRC or WD40 and we sprayed the ignition wires, points and condenser and every other wire we could find that was around the coil.  Then we asked if any one had a dollar bill a dry one if possible.   Buddy’s know well that you will probable not get your dollar back but some one usually antes up.   We folded up the dollar so we could snap the points on it to clean and dry the ignition.   We never had a failure!   Sand in the carb slide was common, sticky throttle but that is another story!

    Undo the nut that the pull cord grabs to start the motor, reverse thread? Then use a puller to get the flywheel off?
