A liner O-rings or a head gasket will wind up in the oil pan. I have never seen a air compressor put water in oil. There is always a first. I pull the oil pan and look for where it is coming from. Most of the time for me its a liner O-rings. You can see if its coming off the out side of the liner, then its O-rings or in side the liner, or oil drain hole then could be head gasket. It you pull a valve cove and look for on the top side it will have white goo all over it there is any water in it.

I don't trust oil samples unless you have a history of them. I have taken 2 samples out of the same stream of oil and one will be fine and the other has red flags. I would check to make sure you have water in the pan by checking inside of valve cover. Let the oil set over night and crack the oil plug, water will come out first. Make sure you have a drips coming out of pan plug after oil is out. Pull pan and go looking.

'Listed a Perkins T6.354 on DieselEngineTrader and sold it after 5 month. With a listing fee of $5.00 per month and no commission, it was much cheaper and more effective than the magazine we also used.'
