I need some help

I'm going to tell you the entire story. I recently bought a 2008 Prowler 650 xt. It ran amazing without any issues. I took it camping and it was night time and couldn't tell how deep the water was and fell into a deep part of the creek. I turned the key to shut off as soon as I started falling in. Brought it back home and drained the oil and changed it. Was still getting water in the oil. Pulled the plug and hit the key and was shooting water out. Did this about 15 times and no more water. Put everything back together and she fired right up. So I changed the oil again and bam water in the oil. I did this 7 times. Finally pulled the muffler and it was full of water. I'm guessing that's where the water was coming from yet. So I pulled the pipe just to make sure there's not any water in there and nothing. So I fired it for maybe 10 seconds to make sure it all the water is gone and thankfully there's no water coming out. My question is.. I cannot find a gasket for the exhaust pipe. Everything is a doughnut. Any ideas?

Ok thanks. I found and ordered it. So now I thought all the water was gone but no. When I drain the oil there's only one plug for the tranny and oil. The plug isn't low enough to drain everything out of the belt housing too. I've tried jacking it up, letting it sit over night, then lowering it, and there's more that comes out. But upon refill and riding it.. the oil looks milky again. Any suggestions?

You might try pulling the oil pump screen next time you drain the oil, there could be a chance some moisture is settling there. Do you have a service manual? If you don't you can download a free one here: "K&T Parts House Lawn Mower Parts and Chain Saw & Trimmer Parts"

Do you notice white smoke when you start it? I'm wondering if coolant is getting in the oil.

No service manual. Thanks for adding that link. There is not any coolant going into the oil. That was my initial thought but the coolant level has stayed the same. There is white smoke as well.

The oil strainer screen.. if I'm looking correctly, does it sit in the bottom of the motor where the drain plug screws into?

I think I would do a cylinder leak down test, just to make sure the headgasket isn't bad, from the water compression in the cylinder.

Is that the only other place that oil or water actually could be left at in the motor? Could any moisture be in that belt housing since it appears that all the oil does not drain out of there?
