water filled cyls?

A guy i know had his truck idleing for 4 hrs to charge the batterys on his truck bc they were dead and shut it off and the next time he went to start it was locked up, just like it was sized, so he got it towed to ford they ripped it down and found 2 cyl full of water? If mine is idled for long i take it for a run before shutting her down witch might be a good practice?. just a heads up and brain scratcher.

Yea this is why people install high idles like I did to raise oil pressure and maintain engine temp in all temperatures. High idle also makes for a complete burn of fuel preventing this issue. It is called wet stacking when a diesel engine runs at a low rpm for a extended period of time such as in this case. Diesel engines like to be run at higher rpm's while idling. This is good evidence of wet stacking and this problem that some people ignore cause they cant see. Just as you said it is proper practice to run a diesel for a little while after it has been idling at low rpm's it allows for burnoff of built up condensation and unburnt fuel.

I got hi idle on mine and even with that run it after, but i was just shocked and wondering if it could all be condasation? I know alot of ppl say wet sacking is a myth but this is proof its not.

Its not a myth. And no there's no way condensation would do that.

The real question should be what FORD considers to be "full of water". Weather it be 2tsp or half a litre.

Lets just say not quite stock.
