The point of this post is: in my experience with flooded boat engines is that the quicker you could get one running (usually hours) the better. Detailing can happen later.
I have been feeling that I really need to get this running, then follow up with the rest.
I did put in a little time today and checked the transmission and gas tank for water. All clear.
The video:

Revised plan:
  • Put it back together with lots of substitute (known good) parts.
  • Carefully power everything essential back up, one fuse at a time:
  • Start the engine and idle for 10 minutes.
  • Check for problems, pull oil filter cup and examine.
  • Put some seats in and bolt an exhaust back on.
  • Drive a mile to the Tag Agency (Local DMV) and show them some receipts for parts and file for a 'rebuilt title'
  • Drive home and start taking it all back apart.
I am not an attorney, mechanic, or member of the clergy. Following any advice given in my posts is done at your own peril.
