I know of a Bird that had the air purge valve fail. It filled the air system with water....all airbags filled and enough to have water come out the dash gauge.
I'll bet the fresh water is empty

Sobering thought.

Yea, I know I am going to be out there this weekend disconnecting that darn purge line.. Just hate the thought of water getting in the air system.. actually I wonder if mine might already be getting some.. I have noticed some times when I turn on the water pump it just continues to run and does not build up pressure. Also I almost always have water in my wet air tank, I just figured it was the Florida humidity... makes me wonder now..

You can add a ball valve on it to maintain the blow out function, works great. There are examples one here.

How would the water get from the air system to the engine intake, turbo and airfilter ?

Right through the compressor and up into the hose where the air compressor sucks air through the engine air filter. It would have to push past a few things, but over the months it would do so.

fill the air tanks, air dryer, push pass PPV, or maybe travel through governor, then the compressor, out the inlet to the 8V air intake. that is some smart water.

I don’t know could be plausible. Anyone have a dead bird we can test the theory on?

The water was too high up in the engine to have come from the fresh water tank unless it was pressurized. Gravity has rules.
