It could be the intake gaskets or even still the head gasket. How about the coolant ? Did you refill with same type coolant ? Have you noticed if it's thick and gooey ? mixing coolants will sometimes produce a thick gooey coolant that clogs up the cooling system. If the car ran hot it could also be a cracked head or block. Warped heads also. Somehow the coolant seems to be getting into the cylinder(s).

lack of service probably the cause try thicker oil or stp engine wear oil has it been stood for a while? if so recomend new oil and filter make sre you flush old oil out with cheap oil then proceed with oil change you can use oil flush too the oil should be golden once started after a week check oil again for signs of emulsification on the cap

I'd be tempted to live with it depending on whether the vehicle is using coolant on the assumption that it is condensation causing the saponification of the oil. If the Lucas oil treatment caused the pressure to rise so dramatically I would suspect that some crud has come adrift and lodged in the pressure sender.
The chance that the cylinder head is cracked would be more rare than a leaking head gasket both of which could possibly be tested by a leakdown test of individual cylinders.
The water has to come from somewhere.
Does the soap go away when the engine is warmed up?

Testimonial: "Good point on the pressure issue, not using coolant. Dip stick had rust on it and so did the inside of the fill cap. Hot or cold white on the stick."
