need more info is it seized from just sitting there with water in it or ?? if its just had water in it take all the plugs out and put a mixture of kero and diesal down each hole and let sit for a few days then just work the bolt on the harmonic balancer back and forth till it turns easy and try turning over after all that with no plugs in to free up the pistons in the bore replace all oils but i cant see why you cant save the engine if nothing has been bent? and you are gentle.

If it's hydraulicked ?? As said above take plugs out.. Crank engine over...
Install plugs and way you go... You won't do any more damage than whats
already been done...
Yes there could be one or two bent rods.. Don't rev the crap out of it till
you know it's going good...
Check air cleaner etc and remove any water...

your joking right. blow water out and away you go. if your extremely lucky it run and not sound like death. as for the gear box and diff just do a few oil changes to get the water out

Yeah and if you got it going and it 'sounded a bit s**t' you'd scrap the engine anyway. Or you could not worry about it and just scrap it now. Or you could get it going and it'll run for years.

at worst it's scrap, by just getting it going you have nothing to loose.

To the OP

In any case, just claim it on insurance.

No one has asked this yet I dont think, but was the motor running when the water went in or was it parked and the water rose around it and just filled up from being under a metre of water? If its the later, pull the plugs and turn it over, it might well be fine. Id guess thered be a few things wrong with it though. If it were running when it went under id say its fooked. I wouldnt want to be the owner in a few yrs time when the rust issues begin...

imo as long as it wasnt at any hard throttle or higher than average rpm when it took on water it will more than likely be ok..
the engine may have stalled/sufficated before any major hydrolok damage was done??

My Au swallowed water once, it did go on to make nearly 160 rwkw. When that motor came out it had a bent rod in cyl 6. Pull the plugs, inject some oil into the cylinders and just turn the key.

After all if you can get a new motor for nothing what's the harm in trying?
