I have a Cummins gas engine that got flooded due to a bad bilge pump. at the dock and wasn't there to see it.
They say it can't be repaired...
Any suggestions for a new repower?
HELP I am bummed, as I had only 25 hours on the Cummins and transmission!

I would get a second opinion before replacing everything.

How long was it submerged? Completely or partially? How long ago? B series or qsb series?

I would drain the oil in the oil pan and remove the oil filter and see whether the water got inside. Of course this should have been done on day 2.

As anyone with any experience will tell you the submerging albeit a problem the real issues arise when its raised. If the boat wasn't pickled and handled properly well I would say you're screwed. Plus if the batteries were on and electric current went to the engine that might destroy all the costly electrical components, That being said if it is a gas engine replacement of a remain is probably more cost efficient in the end.
