Moisture in the block/oil.  Normal to a point.  Running engines for short periods without reaching full temps will cause a buildup of moisture.  Long run times will rid the engine of moisture better.

Water is a byproduct of combustion and as cowhand said running for short periods will cause it to build up,got to run em up to temp to boil it out.

It that the breather it's coming out of ? it does seem excessive though --does your oil look like a milk shake ? if so drain it now , oil and water will mix and is not a very good lubricant.

Is it possible it sat outside in the rain and could have seeped into the crankcase? It needs gone however it got in there.

ya I am going to change it. between the issues of one side not firing for who knows how long, sitting out side all summer and not knowing the history of the machine. I am just going to change the oil.  Seemed a little on the then side when I drained it.  So I change it and see if it quits.

 

thanks everyone

When you were a kid, did you ever pull out the dipstick on your dad's mower and pee in it?  No. . .       I suppose not.
