Here is a link to a parts diagram for the cylinder head that shows the part number for the coil:

You need to get all of the water out of the engine and thoroughly lubricate the cylinder and head. Keep cranking the engine with the plugs out and spraying some lube in the spark plug holes until there is no more water coming out. Open up the gap on the spark plugs to about 1/8 of an inch. This will prevent any water droplets from remaining on the gap and preventing spark. Once the engine starts let it run for 30 minutes on the flush hose and then change the oil and filter. It may take more than one oil change to get any water out of the oil.

Also check the air filter for water. Some models used a paper element filter that needs to be replaced if it gets water on it. The foam filter models just need to have the foam dried of all water.
