also, do bf's have a towing point?

will have to change all the transmission oils,motor,gearbox and diff---pull the plugs to check no water in the engine,battery may be flat,clean and dry the whole engine bay wiring and relays,under dash wiring and thru car,have to strip the interior out to wash and dry it out,was the water muddy?exhaust is full of water,can you get a air compressor to dry it out,big job to do it right.

the interior will go mouldy if left damp.

s**t 200mm below the window is pretty dam high...
have you tried to crank it over??

being a b series there is no dizzy and your coils are on top of the plugs under the engine cover on the rocker cover..
if the water was waist height?? im assuming the interior was flooded aswell??
if the bcm got wet it dont sound good.. the ecu being on the top of the inner guard you might be lucky there... to many electrical items, adding water is usually bad news....

im thinking all wiring and transmissions are flooded and the motor intake-exhaust,may be a few cylinders full of water.as he said 200 mm below the window is high-all electrics are wet\soaked.

i did try start it, and it didnt start... sounded like it had a flat battery, but obviously more damage done than that... yeh interior is wet, maybe 100 mm of water in there... just left it, was too pist off and was still pissing down with rain, am goin back there tomoro morning to see what i can do... prolly guna hve to get it towed home so i can work on it, if only i could just tip it upside down and shake the water out aye..
