Oil in cylinders

What could cause that ? I am looking for a bottom end and found one close to me, but he said he thought the head was cracked. Perfect, til I talk to him on the phone. He said there ed oil pumping into the cilynders. I'm thinking hmm. I didn't think there was pressueized oil in these heads. Any ideas what to look for so I don't buy a boat anchor? Thanks guys.

Oil in the cylinders can cause a runaway motor. Meaning you cant shut it off or stop it without cutting the air supply off. Its very dangerous. Its probably bad injectors leaking oil in there.

Yes, I believe that any oil in the cylinders would be most likely coming from bad injectors as stated above.
