waxy/milky oil..

Hey,
I have a newly built 383 with the edlebrock performer rpm package. I an seeing some milkiness at the valve cover breathers and at the oil dip stick just above the oil level.
If I do not have a blown head gasket, is it that I am not running warm enough to get the condesation from the oil? Or is there a major problem going on here?
Thanks for any and all info..
Opey

this is likely just condensation, my last 2 rebuilds my engine did the same thing. to be sure you can do a pressure check on the cooling system.

I figured condensation too but I was wondering if I changed the thermostat so that the car would run hotter to bake some of the water out of the oil? The car has an oversized radiator and runs pretty cool. What temp range should I be aiming for on a streetable high out put 383?
Thanks..
Tank.
