6.0 crankcase milkshake after head gaskets

just got done doing the headgaskets on an 04. started before the batteries went dead, ran great, no codes, never got hot drove it for about 25 min. three days in a row. third day got back and was whitesmoking. assumed it was the coolant in the muffler, but check the oil anyway and found myself an ugly milkshake. tore it back down to the oil cooler and found the gasket around the water-pump outlet melted to the block. looks like it could seep into the hpop resorvoir

btw didn't pressure test, or resurface heads. cleaned spotless, looked for cracks. seemed good and slapped them together. won't ever do that **** again. other than that took my time and feel confident about the headgaskets... unless the girl that blew it up just smoked this engine. got ae and can send pics. just don't want to pull the heads again but am sure i'll have too.

Def should have taken them to a machine shop to make sure the decks were straight. Sorry this happened to you.

ok update. yall ain't gonna belive this! I thought about it for 2 DAYS! and decided that the oil cooler gasket was just too easy of a fix, so i pulled the heads got pressure check, strightness check and magnaflux, The heads are fine! So i got coolant in the oil and cylinders some where else? I can't understand it. The oc gasket could explain the oil, but what about the cylinders? EGR is good, Intake was dry, Just cylinders, exaust manifold, up pipes and exaust. has to be head gasket?

redone headgaskets, new gasket on the oil cooler, new egr, (old one was leaking, thats what the coolant in the cylinders was) fired up ran great, drove 20 min pulled oil filter and it was full of water! i have no idea what could cause this. the oil is so much more pressure. it should be the oil in coolant. some where coolant is leaking into oil that is not pressurized but where? water pump? Oil Cooler?

maybe a bad oil cooler? It could leak out of the water passage of the cooler into the sump...

Pull your water pump, check front cover for cavitation.
