Just a warning:
Be VERY careful to dribble SLOWLY if you try the procedure listed
below.  If you get too much water in any one cylinder you get a
hydraulic lock.  What this means is that the piston will not be allowed
to complete it's stroke.  The water WILL NOT yield, so the piston and/or
the rod and/or the crank will.  End of engine.
