Cleaned out the screen on the drain plug. It was full of slimy crud. Filled up with 5-30 oil to flush out any remaining contamination. Ran until good and warm. Normal oil pressure immediately on start up. Re-torqued the head per shop recommendation. Plan on draining and filling with 30 wt. and new filter next weekend after a good warm up. Hopefully it will be adequately flushed out. May have dodged a bullet here. Per shop, oil showed signs of some moisture contamination. This thing gets driven around the neighborhood occasionally. Otherwise I have just been starting up in the garage and running for a few minutes to charge the battery and circulate some oil. Per the shop likely not running long enough to burn off condensation in crankcase. Lesson learned.
