water in the oil HG look fine

ok im gonna make this as short as possible cause this story is kinda long so bare with me. last week i bought a 2004 f250 with supposedly bad egr cooler. well to begin with the truck had been sitting for about a year with new head gaskets done at dealership. but when i put new batteries it took a while to run and when it did it ran rough and made a popping sound out of the intake so i figured it was a valve stuck open. it was also white smoking out the tailpipe, i made sure it had water in the cooling system so i left it running for a little longer. the popping sound out the intake went away but it still ran rough with white smoke out the exhaust pipe and coolant started to disappear from the reservoir but it never boiled or puked. i shutted it off thinking that it was just the egr cooler and maybe an injector. but when i checked the oil level again to my surprise found light brown milk, thats when i decided that the heads had to come off cause blown head gaskets and install arp's. when i started to take it apart found three bent pushrods and two broken rocker arms so that explained the misfire. but whenever i took the heads out gaskets look fine they dont look blown now my question is how do you explain the water in the oil. it wouldnt b the oil cooler, cause from past experience when the oil cooler goes you get oil in the coolant not coolant in the oil. i already got my arp's and head gaskets so they are going in but what if i still mixes water in the oil what could it be?

I suggest you take those heads to a reputable machine shop and have them magnafluxed. If EGR cooler ruptures you can and most likely will have some coolant in your oil. The machine shop will likely find cracks around the valve seats also. If they do find cracks they can repair with harden valve seats, as long as the crack does not extend to a journal. If so, "kiss of death" for that head. I suggest EGR delete kit with another oil cooler too. When your done, flush the hell out of that coolant system with Restore, VC9 or any good coolant system cleaner. Get all the garbage out now.
