Hi.
I stood my 52 plate LC4 up for the Winter last October, nice and dry in the garage. A couple of months ago to get it ready for this year I serviced it as normal, dropped the oil, replaced the filters and air filter and filled it with new oil. However a couple of minutes after starting the engine the Oil in the sight glass turned a milky white. It's obvious to me that water has gotten into the oil and i am assuming the head gaskets gone but is this a known problem with LC4's, a head gasket to go whilst laid up in the garage?!
Cheers

If the coolants gone you deffo have issues beyond condensation :(

A compression/leakdown test would be a good move at this point.
