    You say the motor never had water in it. Correct? Then someone put it in there.

    Motor never had water in it? As in its a fresh motor or it never leaked before that you knew of? How long has it been sitting?

    The motor is fresh and has never been ran. its been in my boat outside under a tarp for 5 years.... Im ashamed to admit to that but its true
    I found this because i prime the motor every once in a while to try to keep thing good and when i primed it last water was shooting out of the push rod so i stopped and drained the oil and thats what came out along with the milk shake and it seemed to be a lot of water.

    Despite the fact that it hasn't been operated with circulaing water ,moisture or serious condensation has made its to the crankcase , look down the carb or intake for rust or moisture stains if possible try to look thru the intake at the intake valves to see if water has "puddled" there as well (causing rust on intake valves and seats ) sounds like the tarp leaked or "sweated" Tom

    I think it could be a serious case of sweating. The tarp is in good shape. I didnt see any puddling, i have rags stuffed in place of the carb.
    Im concerned about what kind of damage may have happened to the main bearings and other parts. What would be the best thing to do next??

    Pull it and send it to me. I'll let you know if it's good in a couple months.

    Default Hmmmmm...

    Something smells fishy here.... There has to be something that hasn't been said. Motors do not produce that much water just "sitting" under a waterproof tarp... Since he has said there were rags stuffed in the intake, I'm betting that is the source of the water and there is a bunch of rust in other places.... Be sure to check the oil pump relief for rust.....

    Depending on how deep you want to go, I'd pull the plugs spray some Sea foam or Marvel Mystery oil in each cylinder and fog some in/down the intake , drain and flush the oil system with fresh oil (NO diesel) and then do the "tests" Oil pressure , compression and leak down , if alls good I'd consider rockin' it ...

    considering where you live, I'd say that just the humidity can cause water in the pan, if you don't use something for that long then the motor will sit with the same valves open all the time thus causing water to build and condense and eventually leak into the pan just priming the oil is not enough you need to build enough heat to evaporate the water and you need to do it often. I would pull the engine and have it gone through and just take it out and run it a couple times a year and you wont have this problem ever again.
