I removed my carbs, then engine bay filled with snow after a blizzard. What should i do.

I am concerned snow got into the engine from where the carbs where. Its not packed snow there, just flurries, but he front the the engine bay is filled with snow from it coming in all the vent holes.

I was cleaning the carbs due to hard to start condition, but now I'm worried water is in the engine and it will be a nightmare to get started. Plus corrosion concerns.

Should I be worried. Should I try and vacuum it out. What should I do. I don't have access to a heated garage, or one at all for that matter.

I would just blow it out the best you can with the air compressor and don't worry about it. Unless you are going to let it sit for months like that, the little bit of water won't hurt anything and will evaporate and dry out when you get it running.

It would take an awful lot of snow to make much water.

Throw some fogging oil in the cylinders after you remove as much snow as you can and don't sweat it. Keep it in the cold and then it won't melt, turn into water, and sit in your engine.

Toss your carbs on, run it, snow melts, water boils/evaporates, everyone is happy!
