    thanks a lot! the sticker isn't there. I have been using valvoline dura blend 10w40, I have heard that switching back from a synthetic oil will cause massive sludge build up. How true is that?

    not that ive heard of but the oil your using now is good oil and a good weight for summer i prefer kendel because it was the best oil that held up in my harley and i figure any oil that can hold up in an air cooled engine cant be bad at all

Water in all cylanders

Sounds familiar. If the engine oil is too full, oil will splash into the spark plug openings. Then, condensation will sit on the oil shorting the plugs. Be sure not to overfill. Also, the valve cover gasket has an inside seal. Once again, oil will partly fill the spark plug hole if the gasket is bad. There is a large hole in back of the valve cover leading right to the plugs. Be careful not to rinse the engine. Gaskets seal the plugs but water can sit on the plug openings.
