Something sounds FISHY here!

I'd take it back.  He left it outside in a rainstorm?  Where ELSE did water
get to?

But, I never would have thought to pull the oil pan on a newly rebuilt
engine.  Did you suspect something to begin with?

Subject: <VV> water in oil pan

> I just purchased a supposedly rebuit engine.After getting it home and
dropping the oil pan, I found water at the bottom of  the pan.The engine
spins freely and from the looks of the block, it did have work done on it.I
was told that it had been sitting since being rebuilt and had not been ran.I
am assuming water must have gone down the carb. Should I take it back or can
I still use it,and if so, is there anything I should look for before
installing it?
