Thanks everybody. Looks like it was a flash alarm. I think I mistook foaming oil which I checked right after a 2 hour run, with water being in the oil. And then when I removed the oil using the built in pump, it looked like water was coming out at the end but it must of been just oil.

I poured the used oil into clear containers and let it sit for a couple of hours. I could find no evidence of water in that oil. I also removed the hose from the drain plug and just good oil drained out. Looks like I over reacted. Sorry. By the way, a new heat exchanger from Cummins is just $881 and they have one in Portland. Dodged that bullet.

Good thing is with all your help, I learned a lot. Thanks again.
