How long was it hydro-locked?

I'm confused. Is it stuck again, or will it turn over fine and just not start?

if it's hydrolocked then it's got liquid on top of the pistons. pull the sparkplugs. If it turns over and blow water out the cylinders.......... your head gasket is leaking.

He tested the starter and it spins when it is not hooked up, but when he tries starting it with the starter, he gets nothing. This all happened after changing the head gasket and running it twice.

Pull your plugs & tuck your plug wires way out of the way to make sure they don't spark........Then try to turn it over. Don't get close because its going to spray in your face if you do

It might be gas if you have a stuck float or leaky petcock. Figure out which fluid is locking it & go from there

better hope you didnt bend a valve
Riding a Duc is kind of like, you may get a cramp in your wrist, but you keep on trucking because it feels so good.
