    Didn't climb under today it's pouring rain here but was going to check out starter (it just clicks and battery is good) and see if anything got jammed up in by the torque converter tomorrow

    You could drain some oil from the pan into a clear container. If there's water in the bottom, the odds are it's hydrolocked (sorry).

    If there was no water in the cylinders (I would also look for milky oil in the pan) then I'm with Red-knight on the starter. Could have a bad spot. Try tapping with a hammer or pull it and check it.

    Also you can put a socket on the front of the crank and turn it over by hand to verify it will turn. It is easy with the plugs out.

    I'd pull the transmission small cover plate to see how much mud is packed under there and also drop the oil pan for signs of water

    If you still have plugs out, you can put some kind of measuring device in the cylinders. Find out which cylinders are companion cylinders and then compare measurements. Companion piston height should be identical between the two. If you find two that should be but aren't, sorry, rod is bent. Beats pulling the head to find that out.

    Water does compress. It takes 300k psi to compress it 1%. Sorry I teach hydraulics..haha

    Lol. Never heard that, but I trust you. I thought the first law of hydraulics was "A liquid cannot be compressed." Educate me, I'm curious.
