Okay, so, since the engine was going to sit for a while, I drained the oil.  It had a grey streak in it, the rest was so black I could see my reflection in it.  It also wasn't like oil, it was way more watery.  It also smelled like gas....
Strange thing is the right amount of oil drained out.  Don't know where the rest went.  Hopefully this isn't a real issue, I'm probably gonna just run it the way it is.

Do you have a fuel shut off on it? If not sometimes the gas drains from the carb into the cyl, flooding it out, getting into the crank case.

Yeah I did, because I don't have a carb on it anyway.  It might have happened before that though, when it was working fine.
