Default Oil in radiator!

No oil in the oil pan. Evidence of water in the top end only. Valves were white as well as the inside of the exhaust manifold.

Sounds like a serious problem. Did you have a question you wanted to ask?

Sounds like a head gasket or crack to me.

My initial thoughts too. Head gasket or head. If it's running okay considering, it could be the timing chain cover, which is probably the least expensive.

If by chance it has an oil cooler in it, could be the radiator.

Timing chain cover and heads might be the same $ as a JY motor.
