It was not clear that you were talking about a water leak. Yes, water should not be there. It means that either you are cranking the engine too long with out it starting and water is backing up in the system or else (as happened to me) you have a problem in a different part of the exhaust. If you have a water jacketed section of exhaust, check it for leaks from the water to the gas side. If the water is injected in a muffler you may have a leak there. In my case the muffler had a standpipe that supposedly kept the water from going back down to the engine but after 35 years it corroded out.
