Would you mind posting to the forum how water was sucked in the airbox? I might help some of us avoid the same problem. Sorry, but I am not a mechanic and have no suggestions on what to do next.

Did you take the plug out and blow the water out before running it or did you just clean the airbox out? Water doesn't compress so if it gets filled enough it can snap or bend a connecting rod. Hopefully you didn't tear up the rings. If your sure there is no water in the whole system then something is damaged. I would make sure everything is blown dry from the airbox to the cylinder and if it is and it's still smoking then you broke something. That pic doesn't look high enough to get into the airbox. Crazy if the tires threw that much water.

black smoke is unburned diesel when you push a diesel engine to hard I give up, are you checking it at night time or in the day at night blue smoke will look black

Exactly thats why im hoping it the fouled plug. It seems to be fueling issue.we will see changing plug and oil tonight. If it was oil wouldnt it have oil residue on the back after a ride?

finally gave up and ordered parts for rebuild. should be here anyday been waiting for 3 weeks. anyone know anything about the cylinder they said it could not be honed?
looks like some valve trash and an oil ring was the problem. gonna change piston, rings, cylinder, valve seals, and see what happens.

I wonder if it is coated from the factory...if so any work done to the the cylinder would require recoating. Many places aren't set up to do it and won't mess with motors that require it since it involves sending it out for plating.
