Water in my oil?

Trying to figure out what my problem is I don’t Know if I have a cracked block or a blown head gasket water in my oriole pulled the spark plugs no water in any cylinders have some from oil in my air intake but that could’ve come from the breeder. I’m not sure what else to check any advice would be welcome to try to figure out my problem. This is a 1978 Cherokee chief 401 With a TH 400.

Start with a compression test.

Could be a valley pan/intake leak as well.

What do the plugs look like? Any of them "clean"?

does your oil look like a milk shake? or are you seeing it at the top of your dip stick or in the oil fill tube? if your oil in the pan does not look like a total milk shake and there is a little in the filler tube or on the upper part of dip stick. this can be caused by condensation.which can be caused by over filling the oil and the crank beating the oil causing the oil to foam. which will also cause the oil to appear in the air cleaner. this is a best case situation.

if the oil is totally milky compression check first the cyl leak down test. also could be leaking intake manifold gasket. check torque on intake bolts. you didn't say you were loosing coolant or not. good luck!
