OK, I emptied the radiator and the first half of the coolant showed some discoloration but no oil was present.

I then drained some more and about the last 2 cups did show oil.

Like I mentioned before, could it be that the extra quart of oil that I put in the engine somehow found it's way to the cooling system via the intake? The engine never smoked burning that extra oil. Hmmmmm

Yes, I hate to take this thing apart again.
