well, electric motors don't like to be put under water, so I'm gonna go with YES all that water could screw it up... Thats my final answer.

When you say it will manually crank, that means you can put a breaker bar on the crank pulley and the motor will turn?

Cuz if it turns freely, but won't crank up, there can still be alot of problems/noises that you won't hear until the motor actually cranks up and is running...

EDIT: 4 foot deep hole in a stock ranger is a DUMBASS thing to do. Just so ya know.

did you take the spark plugs out? did you check the filter box and see if there is water in it? did you drian your oil in the motor and expect and see any water int it?

Dude, maybe you should buy a 25 horse skiff? Then you will only hafta worry about the shallow water....

Ryan I had a similar experience. You should really have taken out all the spark plugs before u kept trying to crank it and then one u get em all out crank them suckers and let that water blow out of there. my little ranger spit out a fukin water spout 5 feet high and pistons are all still doing fine. change oil 2-3 times...ect you'll be fine no worries bro
