    Water is still in fuel system! Drain tank,,,,not unless you removed it you didn't!! Clean fuel lines, install new filter and most likely a NEW set of 'spark plugs! Got to get ALL the water out,........ "Think" about this; it was running ok,, got water in gas,,,now it won't run!!!!!

    agree you still have water in system. poss in lines remove fuel line and bleed fuel until its free of water then try starting again
