Condensation happens in an engine every time you shut it down or start it up from the temperature changes. Engines have a thermostat in them to make sure they warm up reasonably fast so this condensation will evaporate from heat. If the t-stat isn't working or you just do lots of short drives, the condensation doesn't burn off and can cause that milky stuff. Short drives are considered 'severe service' as far as oil changes are concerned.

I would go with a proper 195 thermostat so it warms up proper.

If you changed the head gasket and you checked the head for cracks and cyl walls for cracks etc. So if all is good there.I would pull the oil pan and clean it out completely.Get the gunk out of the pan..maybe use engine flush for a one minute cycle then drain. Pull the pan and wipe the pan out;clean with brake cleaner;Get it very clean.Put in fresh oil and change the filter.If you haven't cleaned the pan it will always be there because as you drain the oil it sticks to the walls of the pan.My 2 ents...Thanks,Mike

I would put the proper thermostat in it and just be sure to drive it on the highway once in a while to fully heat it up so all the condensation evaporates away.

That milky stuff is normal for an engine that only sees short runs and is the reason short runs are considered 'severe service' for oil change intervals. Highway driving is 'normal' service.

Just a FYI, your gas filter is in upside down which usually causes really long cold starts, you get one vroom, then you have to crank and crank and crank... Acts like a flood, but with the return line lower than the carb line, the gas all siphons out of the line back to the tank when it sits, vaporlocking it.

The filter needs to sit level with the return coming off the top.

I don't think your milkshake 'issue' is an issue.
