Checked oil level for the snowfall they are calling for on 2/13/14,spun top off and at the top of oil fill tube there was ice on inside of tube at the top.I would say enough to fill a soda bottle cap with, cap was screwed on tight,so where would the ice come from,stored outside in unheated shed,it is one of the LCT engines on a sno-tek.

Water would come from condensation but....
I'd think the water would sit on the bottom of the oil and not on top.

I wonder if as the air in the crank case cooled down after the last use it drew water in through the oil fill.

If your motor heats up the oil sufficiently, the heat of the oil should force and water that has condensated into the oil to evaporate out. If not you might want to look into why the motor isn't getting hot enough.

I don't think I'd be overly-concerned about this. You see it on cars during extremely cold weather. It ultimately burns off.
