If they were in salt, they're toast. I bought a salvage O/B the was in salt 24 hrs and then left to drive in the yard. I broke the handle of a 2lb hammer trying to knock the pistons out of the cylinders.
Even fresh water, everything steel or electronic is gone.
I'd also pass unless able to steal it. Could make some money back parting the motor assuming you can get them apart.
