I doubt that it was unharmed. i bought one that had been swamped and the gear box oil looked like straight muddy / greasy goo. It wouldn't function at all. Required a full rebuild. The vent lines on the gear box are way to short so i ran them under the from panel, but in this guys case that would not help.  The engine also had a rod knock. Found the bearings scored from the water intrusion.

You can resuscitate one that's been for a swim fairly easily, though it won't be free. First pull the plugs and crank the water out of the cylinder(s). Failure to pull the plugs before cranking WILL result in a bent rod if there's water in the cylinder.

As far as the fluids go, drain all oil, grease, and diff fluids. Refill with something cheap, run it for a few minutes (watching closely the temp and oil pressure), shut it down, re-drain everything, fill with normal lubes and go ride for 15 minutes. Check your fluids for any sign they don't look the same as when you poured them out of the bottle. Any change probably indicates there's still water in there. If so, drain, fill, repeat. Until your oil/diff fluid doesn't look funny anymore. It's a proven system we've used many times over the years. GOOD LUCK!

PS WD40 your electrical connections. Did you know the WD stands for "water displacing"? That's why it was used for years on distributor caps and rotors on older trucks..
