F**k, thats no good. even with car stands i hate getting under there aye. heapd of people seem to be having troubles lately hey. i feel for you very much man. best of luck! atleast we can always come here and someone knows what they are talking about, id be screwed without it haha.
i just came to let you all know that my engine turns over!!!!! :lol: :D now to check if i have spark, replace fuel and filter. and then dump the oil once more for good mesure.
now before i get my hopes up, is there anything that i should be weary of? could there be any water in the bottom of the bbm?

Use the starter motor to crank without the plugs in.
it should suck any water out of the bbm.

as above if you crank the engine using the starter without the plugs any water that may be in there wont cause it to hydrolock due to there being no compression.

Dude, like everyone else has said, feel really sorry for you and hope it all works out - I have what might seem like an absolute bastard of a suggestion...lets say you get it to run more or less OK, and get it dried out etc to the point that it isn't obvious what has happened - I'd suggest selling it...I mean, I know its ur pride and joy etc but lets be realistic - you may have ongoing problems for months ahead yet with electrical sh*t going wrong, you may have engine damage even if it does run, you may have rust / mould issues down the track too - there's a good reason most insurance companies would write it off....you can always cut your losses now and get another BA...hell, you could even remove any aftermarket stuff to save for the `next' one...

I know, what a bastard trick to pull on the next owner, how un Australian am I, etc etc etc but lets face it this kinda crap happens every day, people selling their problems to someone else - hell, why would most people be even selling their car if it was running perfectly and giving them no problems?

Just one word of advice if you DO sell it - don't sell it on this forum, OK?

Sorry man I really do sympethise and you may think I'm a c**t suggesting this, but have a think about it - only trying to save you losts of ongoing pain..
