If no foamy dipstick, then check hydraulic fan oil level. Could be a bad shaft seal on the hydro pump- sending 10W30 into the crankcase. Either that or a leaky fuel line on one injector- sending diesel into the crankcase. Pull off the valve cover and look for the "clean" fuel line. They are all normally coated with black oil. A clean one means it's getting rinsed off with fuel.

Bad/leaky injector(s) will do that, getting ready to change the injectors on the Duramax for that same reason, again

You might want to pull your oil drain plug to see if there's any coolant in bottom of pan if you haven't already. Just catch the very first pint or so and look at it. Also you could pull an oil sample and send it to Cat test lab. They can tell you exactly what is in it. Good luck.

Hi Woody,

A couple of years ago we had a WOG member miss the WOG rally because his 93 WB had the same problem. His problem was what Shane said - he had some loose fuel line nuts inside the valve covers that allowed a couple of gallons of fuel to get into the oil.
