also, any tips on getting it started after a flood. i took the engine out and dumped the water out, let it set open for a few days, sprayed it with WD-40 and put it all back together. I had same trouble after putting it all back together last time and it eventually fired. but this time it seems to not want to, might still be a little wet but should still fire espeacially when i poor fuel in the cylinders.

You don't need much pressure at all. Take spark plugs out, ground your wires, turn engine over while blowing compressed air into the cylinders. Many rags are usually used. Use new spark plugs, pour 2 stroke or fog oil down holes if not using for a while. No wd-40.

A little late since you have it fixed already.... but the tip I've heard from a lot of people is to flood the engine with TRANSMISISON FLUID which will get the water out and leave a slick coat for a little while.

Glad you got it going again.
