Re: OT-- Old Photograph- That famous guy from Boston!

Temperature extremes will put water in the funnel too. Cold engine-warmer environment. Seen this many times here. Part of the reason I kicked 2 T's out of the cozy little shop. Darned ice in the funnels.
If the threads aren't perfect, the water runs down like the dirt.
