Two oil changes should have gotten most of the water out unless there was water in the filter. The rest of the water should evaporate with use. I will usually let them warm up a few minutes and then drain the oil.

I have heard water in oil will ruin car engine bearings.

If the case is sealed, then it is probably condensation. If the dipstick is missing, then oil would be flying out the dipstick tube.
Ford trucks are known to get a milky white slime on the oil fill cap if you only drive it a few minutes at a time.

Are you sure it isn't leaking watered down gas in the engine thru the carb or fuel pump?

.=======================================


That would be my guess. One oil change should have removed the water.

If that were true, then his fuel consumption should be very high and his oil level would climb higher on the dipstick. The smell of gasoline in the drained oil would be very prevalent also.

Gasoline does not make engine oil turn milky. Water does. Water can be introduced from the exterior due to the dipstick hole being left uncovered or it can come from condensation taking place inside the engine due to the crankcase not breathing properly. I suspect the latter. If the engine breather system is not functioning, then water vapour from the combustion process has no way of exiting the crankcase and it condenses on the internal parts leaving them with a whitish goo that is hard to get rid of.
