help didnt get there for awhile.. finally my sisters husband andrew came and helped.. starting it up was horrible.. there was tons of smoke and a weird clicking noise from the passenger side of the engine bay.. i think its a relay... it won't even start now....the water wasnt very high when i tried it.. but couldnt make it so i sat there as the water rose...

Quick drain all fluids run it for about 15min and repeat. Did any H2O get in the intake, looks like it may have?

 

I used to drive thru creeks in a local mud hole with my old XJ, flooded the motor with water drained it started it and the motor blew 3 days later sitting in traffic, all because I didn't change the oil....DOH....

Ya make sure you pull the plugs let it dry and and crank it over a few times with the plugs out to make sure you don't hydro-lock the motor. Bad things happen when you hydro-lock the motor.

 

Good luck. Awesome pics by the way. The flowing water looks really cool in them!

well when i tried to start it as i was getting pulled out it made a horrible grinding noise... like the starter wasnt grabbing the fly wheel..

 

it started then blew smoke everywhere, i tured it off and it hasnt started since... i think it got a little water in there but not too bad.. i already drained the oil and am about to do the spark plug wires...

 

but it still sounds like the starter isnt catching the fly wheel.. or is it somethin else?
