If a engine ever gets water in it's oil (Milky color I know) what is the best way to remove it? I know you can do multiple oil changes, but I've also heard that you can drain all the oil and then flush it w/ Diesel Fuel to get any remaining water. I know you don't run it w/ the Diesel fuel in it... just pour it and then drain it out. Is their anything better than Diesel fuel to Use? Kerosene?

Thanks

Only way I have heard of is to keep running oil through it. Fill run for a bit drain. repeat untill all is gone. Buy several cheap filters to do this. Change the filter every time. Some people save their old filters for this reason. Just put them up to drain till they are needed. Pain in the ... but the best way to do it! Do a search on here for oil filters and you will find a x reference to some cheap brands! Once you are done I would run a good filter though!
SMILE!!

Can you use kerosene in the rear ends?

We just had water in my buddies rearend, the oil didn't seem to take it out very well, we ended up puting it by the wood stove and using a little hair dryer action with the plugs out for a day or so to let it evaporate some. Seem to help, we didn't have any extra oil, just enough for two changes.

I think I read that kerosene can hurt rear ends, is this true, we were wondering about that?
