Default 98 Ranger 3.0 wont start

So my new years started off on the wrong foot, I put my Ranger on it side in the snow! It died when I rolled onto the drivers side. I let it sit for 48 hours or so to let all fluids drain back to the right stop. I went to start it and it turns a little then stops. Any thoughts on whats going on? the other funny thing is that the surp. belt came off.

pull the spark plugs and turn motor over, you may have oil in the chamber (sp?)

Could have killed the battery when it was on its side. All the acid could've drained out of it and now won't hold a charge.

I have the puggs pulled and the battery is still working. It sounds like a metal on metal clunk when it stops turning.

You watchin' it when you turn it over? (or someone else) Double check your belt install, crawl underneath (or flip it over..jk) and see if somethings jamming your flywheel.
