Get the water out for sure, otherwise rust is going to start forming in a hurry, I wouldn't hold out much hope, you need to get the heads off and see what's going on in the cylinders

I would pull the glow plugs and spin the motor by hand a few times, a word of caution tho a guy at work did a similar move and snaped rods and his crank, he was revving it up a bit try'n to float across the water.

If it turns over by itself, I would pull the glow plugs and crank it over by hand. Your going to have to take the intercooler out to completely dry it out. Then change the oil and see if it fires. You dont need to take the injectors out unless the fuel tank got flooded. Good luck.

Just to be on the safe side I would also change my oil now that she is up and running, if there is any water in the oil your bearings are hating life right now, and wearing quickly

Very Good to hear, I was kicking myself for not saying it earlier. I know better. I used to save the brand new jet ski's that pepole would sink when I worked at the dealer.

I think id change the oil a few times just to make sure all the moisture was out of it. Good you got it running. Hopefully no rust made pits on anything that was important...like cylinder walls.:gaah

I look at some of this aftermarket stuff and just shake my head. Sure you get a few extra HP, but at what cost?

I have never heard of anyone doing this on anything but an aircraft engine (in an airboat).

When an airboat sinks, they run diesel through the case in place of oil, and turn it over to help get the water out. Just an idea.
that makes sense diesel still has enough lubercating quality to allow a motor to turn over (not run) a few times and push out all the water. And at $3 a gallon that beats putting 30-50-100 dollars worth of oil in just to throw it out. but with as picky as our motor is I dont think I would feel right putting diesel in my crank case and turning her over.

you did not mention if water had gotten in there or not was your oil milky when you drained it?

That will also douch'e out any sludge built up in motor. That's why LB7's are so clean when injectors fail.
