Default 1998 f3 not starting after water got into system

Hello my name is Charlie and I recently cleaned my carbs and everything ran great after installing them and new plugs but I 4got to put a bolt in the gas tank lid when cleaning old gas out from sitting and water got into system and I ran it not realizing it and it got into my system so tried water remover and cranked and cranked with no luck so I pulled the tank and fuel lines and got any and all I could out and cranked and cranked and it finally got it to start after putting it 2getr and jumping it a few times with running vehicle and took it for a half-hour ride to get water out the system and went home only for it to not start the following morning so installed new plugs again checked fuel pump starter relay even put new coils in it and after cranking and cranking and jump starting cus all the cranking drained my battery a couple times it still won't turn over and sounds as if the battery is dead so I went and bought a new battery but again cranks but sounds like it's not getting enough power but the battery tests great but I test the battery while trying to start and the voltage drops dramatically by 3-4 vollts is that normal cus afterwards it reads fine again around 12.40-12,50 so plz help

Maybe need to go back a few steps Charlie, first prove you have fuel at the carbs and there's a good spark, next what ever you do dont get a jump start off a running vehicle, check your heavy cables at the battery and make sure their not broke through (will reduce the amperage) and maybe blow a fuse, make sure the rubber connectors to the engine from the carbs are tight and not sucking air
