99 7.3L powerstroke water in oil

Hi I've got a 99 f-250 superduty with a 7.3L powerstroke in it. I'm new to the diesel world, but have been working on cars for years. I recently replaced all the injector cups(had fuel in the coolant) and all of the injector o-rings. All of which were factory ford parts. I had a problem with getting the dipstick back in the tube all the way, when i finally solved this problem and was able to get the dipstick all the way in, when i pulled it back out i discovered water in the oil. My question is, what could be causing this, there is no oil in the radiator tank(that i can see). I just need to now where to start as far as what the problem(or problems) could be. Any help is greatly appreciated.

unless them cups are not seated correctly and/or sealed correctly, maybe the problem lyes there. Only other place would be the oil cooler.
