Yeah, i had water in the air box. It stalled in the water. I didn't try to.start it right away. I pulled the spark plug right away and ejected any water by cracking it. Not too much came out. What concerned me is that,.not two weeks ago a buddy of mine sank his and hydro locked it. Pulled the plug and it fired right up. Mine did have water in the oil. I changed it last night and probably a few more timesbefore I take it out again. I have spark. I can smell raw fuel coming from the exhaust. I even sprayed starting fluid in the cylinder and I still didn't fire. I'm out of ideas.

Fuel injected or Carb ? If Carb drain the fuel bowl , even though you smell raw fuel the carb is probably loaded with water ,my 08 500 even though snorkelled would pull water in through the drain plug until I plugged it - really tough to start till all the water was burned out of fuel..

I'm waiting on a buddy of mine to bring his tester over. But it seems like it's getting good compression. I tried to plug the spark plug hole with my finger and it blows my finger right out.
