Hey, I pulled the engine out of my NC wreck the other day, and covered it up with a tarp and I thought all was fine, But I borrowed the camshaft and rocker gear out of it yesterday, and the bloody tarp blew off, and it started to rain, what should I do? lol so it sat overnight in the rain with no rocker cover on it.....all the spark plugs are in and I have an oily rag in the throttle body at least.

I'd imagine some water got into the sump via oil galleries...time to drain the oil and put a rocker cover on it. Not sure how to remove all the water...diesel as engine oil, flush and then new oil maybe?

ive herd of flushing a motor through with diesel to get the water out also, maybe put a rocker cover back on it ay :)
