Id you stalled while in it you may have gotten water from the vent hose that runs to teh bottom of the engine on the left side ?

can u like change 5 or more times of engine oil to get rid of the water in the oil, instead of disassembleing the motor completely,

trying to save some time & money here,

I did try to start it with breather tub in water, I take it this is a bad practice.
Yes. When the piston goes down, it pushes 450cc (or whatever) of air out of its way. It has to go somewhere, so it goes out the breather. When the piston goes up, it pulls 450cc back in. The capacity of the breather hose is roughly 50cc. Do the math.

You may want to look at my response (4 or 5 down) to this thread:
