SOURCE: car idling - carburetor
If you have oil in the water it smacks of a problems with the gasket or a crack in the head. Did you tension the head with a torque wrench? Did you retension after the first drive, with engine cool? What do the spark plugs look like?
Did you adjust the ignition timing after replacing the points?

check the water pump gasket and timing chain gasket for leaks. You should take it and have a coolant pressure test done to quickly determine the source of your problem.

Hi ,engine oil in the coolant can only mean 1 of 2 things either head gasket or cracked block,It often takes experienced eye to see where the gasket problem is, it wont be :cracked:in that sense of the word,but I`m sure that will be the trouble... for oil to be in the water the leak will be between an oil gallery hol;e and a water jacket hole and the onlyevidence may be a darker colour between the 2 holes it wont be abig section ,or the oil pressure would have pushed alot of oil through into the water i think it is on an oil return gallery, unless there was a lot of oil.if you know an experienced older mechanic ask him to have a look at the gasket for you.I doubt it will be a cracked block ,unless you have had it realy hot and added cold water to the engine while it was hot. If not I sugest you clean every thing nicely and put anew head gasket on put it back together..If you need any help in that area, dont hesitate to get back to me and i`ll help where Ican, thanks

Observe the engine running in the dark to see if there are any spark jumps from the wires or coil, you may have a carbon track.....
