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%.

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

if you think you locked it up, drain the oil and replace it with new filter!

remember 16Qts of fluid!

If your cylinders are locked with liquid, you need to do more than change the oil. You need to pull the GP's and get the liquid out of the combustion chamber, I hope nothing is bent from trying to start it.

I am in Corpus Christi TX.... pulling the glow plugs is the first thing I want to do. Not getting off work until 5pm plus the rain I really need a garage and an extra set of hands to make progress quick... I think I have the tools I need but I don't know if I'll need any long extensions or anything I don't have.

I hope I didn't bend or break anything either. If I can get the water out of the cylinders and get it to turn over then I'll change the fluids and make sure I get all the residual water out of the intercooler pipes etc...

anybody from around here?!?!?! there are tons of powerstrokes driving all over the place down here- there must be somebody who likes helping work on them !!!! please please please
