Sounds like condensation to me. Do you take a lot of short trips? If so, do you let the engine reach full operating temps?

wow i bet your right. car has sat in garage for 1 year roughly. Cant drive it its only half back togather from resto. This damn spring weather condensates the cement floor too. Hmm hoopefully engine is still ok. I been letting it idle for a while sometimes i dont know what else to do. I have it about 2 ft off the floor.

It should be ok, however how old is the oil? The big reason they say change every 3 months is due to condensation, when its mixed with oil it creates an acidic mixture. May be a good idea to change it if you can't get the engine heated up properly

Did you rebuild the engine during the resto? It's probably assembly lube if you did.
