    I had a motor shipped to me and it arrived today.  It is used and there is some water in the bag, I assume from the water pump.  I'm concerned that it has been flipped and turned around a bunch and it is possible that water made it into the cylinder.  What is the best way to check it out before I crank it up for the first time.  He fogged it before he shipped it.

    From the way you described it you shouldnt have any worries, but I guess it couldnt hurt to pull the sparkplugs out, spin the motor over a couple times and see if anythi g comes out
