Blown Head Gasket?

So how does one diagnose a problem with an engine with it on a stand? I have a 7.3 on a stand that has milky chit under the valve covers, and i don't know if its a blown head gasket, bad oil cooler, or just condensation from sitting since it was in a parts truck.

Sorry I cant answer your question but If it was my motor on the stand I would pull the heads and look at the cylinders for cracks. I thought mine blow a head gasket and ended up that I had a crack in the # 2 cylinder wall.

Talk about pissed repair went from 3000 to 7500. My valve covers looked just like that.
