Ok guys, I am desperate. This is how it went down. Was fishing a tournament the 1st of Dec, was launching at ramp, in park and emergency brake on, came out of gear and was fully submerged in 16 feet of water for about 4 to 5 hours. The truck sat......yes sat for two months before anything was drained.
at the end of today......differentials are done, engine been drained, new filter - trans same thing, transfer case. All flushed and new fluids.
It shorted the starter, so had it rebuilt and have yet to put it on.
Someone advised me that I remove the glow plugs and turn the crank to force out any water that may be in there.
I have removed the valve covers and all eight glow plugs and I am still unable to turn the crank. Another person suggested that I install the starter and bump it to force it out.
I want to mention that when I was removing the hoses from the turbo, there was ice within the bottom hose. I actually had water in every section connecting to the turbo.
Could ice be causing me not to be able to turn the crank by hand?
Could water be frozen in there somewhere?
Please ask away......I will tell you guys everything I know about this truck and what I have done...."and haven't done"
