Sunk teryx, drained out now starts with either but won't run

I dunked my Teryx overnight into a river while hunting backcountry Alaska. The teryx drowned over night. Pulled the oil dip and water shot out. I got all the water off the front cylinders filled crank with diesel and drained untill no water. I switched out the fuel with brand new and added Lucas fuel treatment.I switched spark plugs and oil filter and can get her to start when I tried either one time just to see. When I did use it started for 3 seconds then died. If I don't use either it tries but won't turn over. Any help is greatly appreciated and I got this far by past post, thanks for the help!

Lift the front end up and drain out exhaust.
Coils and other electrical dry?
Carb clean or is there some water/dirt in them?

got her started

Awesome, thanks for the 1 response it made all the difference. Cleaned the carb & she started....I changed the oil 3 times, filled the crank with diesel & flushed. I started her back up and she runs but seems like she's running pretty rough. Any idea's to get her running smooth again?

Change front/rear diff was totally water and silty looking oil. Ran her hard put mystery oil and seafoam In the fuel ran her hard. Fine tunes idle and she's running better. Still seams like idle is rough and running her is rough. When I say tough it's not horrible but defiantly not as smooth as before
