I appreciate that man! I have a good feeling things will be made right the best way they can be once we find out what’s wrong. He’s a stand up guy and i feel as if I’ve made a friend throughout my Cig re-due process. I’ve kept him up to date on my progress etc so he has known nearly every step I’ve made. Soon as I mentioned this he said send em back we will figure something out! That was a relief. He probably knows I’m just a young guy trying to make a dream come true and has probably been there himself? Hell who knows!

But I know some days I’d come out and see them and moisture would be present on top of ( outside the valve covers ) and “sweat” along side the blocks and such from time to time so I guess condensation is a possibility? Maybe? I haven’t taken the valve covers off just yet either. I’m gonna try and get the oil out this afternoon and see if it’s a total milkshake or not also per a suggestion above.
Ayuh,..... Was the water drained from the block, after the break-in,..??

If not, I'm guessing you froze busted the blocks,..... 6 hours at 26* is all it takes,......

You can drain the block, isolate the cooling passages, 'n pressurize with air, then listen for the leak,.....
