    how long has the oil been 'milky'?

    a light bulb in a safety housing, under the oil pan, will help the oil flow better...

    Probably only if you disable the ignition and run it on the starter with kero in the pan and Makos idea of light bulb to heat it is good.

    I bought a boat that had a known cracked block by PO and the milky oil that came out the valve covers was like sticky paste. was a MF to get out of the bilge lots of hot water and bon ami ... You don't want to hear this but you may have to pull the engine and drop the pan and valve covers to clean it out. Sounds worse than it is as most engines pull in about an hour if you have a lift.
