I hate to say but what you are describing is water in the oil and the crank was splashing it around so it all mixed together.
Let it sit and they will seperate again.
Smell your dipstick if its alky it will smell like alky.

I had this happen twice. Once when the head studs seeped water though the threads. The second time when I was moving the car in & out of the shop quite often without a good warm up. It was a gas motor but I guess it was condensation.

mine does that after running it and not letting it warm up.after packing the track
for a bit the oil is clear again..change it after 2 races ,but make sure you dont have something leaking.i think it is condensation
unless your radiator is low

I have seen this happen to engines using Kendall oil, and nothing was wrong with the engine. If after checking the cooling system and such and finding nothing wrong, change oil brands and see what happens.

Every one just about it around here runs kendall oil, I would look else where other than the oil!

i am having the same problem, only i can see what appears to be steam, maybe, coming out of the hole that is above the front head bolt in the passanger side head. and when i shut the motor off you can here water or something kind of gurgle in the headers. Any ideas.

If you hear Water gurgle then there is air in the system. Get all of the air out or the engine will not like it. Make sure the rad cap is at the highest point in the cooling system.

If you are running alky for the first time you will think your oil pan is full of water. Run synthetic oil if you are running alky. Fuel saturation of the oil is hard on things. I actually saw a guy at the track one time richening up things so much (on an already flooded car I might add) that he thought a head gasket was blown and it was fuel pouring around his worn out cylinder walls.
