Water in engine?

I messed up and when i was washing the engine, the water oversprayed and some went in to the carb and dizzy. I dried out the distributor with a heat gun, buti couldn't dry out he carb because gas is flammable. What do i do to dry it out, do i just leave it? and what if it got into the block, what do I do then?

Re: Water in engine?

Depends on how much actually got in there. A bit of water is fine, it willl just be thrown out the exhaust when you start it up.

Re: Water in engine?

If it was just a spray or splash, it'll be fine.
I once tried to blow up a 3.9 by pouring more than a litre of water into the intake while it was running - nearly stalled, but other than that it just steam-cleaned the plugs

I just started it up first try, and it's fine. I was worried that it wouldn't because this morning and last night it was turning over fine.
