NEED SERIOUS HELP PLEASE!! Corpus Christi, TX

I am in desperate need of some help getting my 6.0L up and running in a hurry... I am fairly certain I hydro locked it taking it through some water while I was duck hunting last night. I am in the military in pilot training and have some mechanical ability and tools but am lacking a good place or resources (garage) to really tackle this job 100%. I would greatly appreciate an extra set of hands and mind to help me with this problem.

ANY diesel enthusiasts or anybody in general in the area willing to help me I will be willing to more than compensate you for your help...I just want to do everything I can to get this thing running before I have to take it to a dealership. I first want to pull the glow plugs and see if I can't get all the water out, turn it over and then see if it will run. I also want to pull the hot and cold intercooler pipes, try to suck any residual water, then am going to change the oil and go from there.

ANYBODY willing to help I would greatly appreciate and pay you

A hydro locked 6.0 is the easyist engine there is to clear. Pull all your glow plugs, crank and cam sensors. Then crank the engine a bump at a time at first then just go at it. You might want to close the hood it can be messy. I had a bus about two weeks ago that had hydo locked with coolant and I left the hood up when I cranked it the coolant hit a trailer that was about 45 feet away. Then reinstall every thing. If thats all that happened change your oil and filter then all should be good.

With no cam or crank the idm will not try to fire the injectors. Thus no lost fuel and fuel in the exhaust or what gets shot out(I know it is a very small amount) . On our trucks its easy to do so I do it. Not sure on how hard it is on fords. It isnt somthing that has to be done but I try to avoid any fuel spillage if at all possible.
