correct. he would have turned the hose on without it running and told you a little fib on how it happened. If it has being sitting for a while with the water in it its best to pull it down and clean everthing in kerosene wash. Then you can apply plenty of oil to all the bearings and you might want to replace the little end bearings. It gives you a chance to look at everthing, clean it and re-install it with peace of mind. If you get it going now without doing this it possibly could let go at any time doing heaps more internal damage. The gaskets for the engine are stainless so really, to pull it apart and check it is only costing your time and a couple of little ends.

Yes that is a silly question. haha. maybe you should take it to a mechanic. No offence but if you dont know what your doing, you'll just blow it up again. Because you need to get these engines pretty perfect because they are run at 100% throttle most of the time. If you do want to continue, the cylinder with zero compression will need to be replaced. They are nickalsil and f the rings are stuffed, the barrel will be too.
