I may be buying a complete john deere 4045tfm with all the accessories for very short money. The motor was on a stand in someones shop and was under three feet of water during sandy. The guy had it flushed within three hours of getting it out, Also, this was some 25 miles up the hudson river, so it was mostly fresh water. What am I going to need to do??? I have found overhaul kits for around 1000$$$ sleeves, pistons, rings, bearings, gaskets, ect... Am I going to be able to salvage any of the internal parts???? or am I gonna need to completely rebuild this motor?? My mechanic is a very good friend of mine and one of my main fishing buddies so he is with the cause and will not be charging me very much for labor, if he charges me anything at all. Any advice???
