I have two 50 kw generators. today there were flooded below the manifolds with rain water. If the motors are ok, what are the odds on the generator parts

Odds on the generators being OK are 50/50.

But when a genset has been flooded, you should never just try to start it. You need to take them apart and thoroughly clean and dry them. Any moisture or dirt in them can cause severe damage very quickly.
