97 4.2 F150 Coolant leaking into oil?

97 4.2 F150 Coolant leaking into oil?
Hi Im trying to figure out why the antifreeze is leaking into the oil

Ok I ordered a new long block which came wth everthing new except had to transfer the Waterpump, timing cover, lower and upper intake manifold, oil pan from the old engine. Installed it and antifreeze was leaking into oil. So ripped out lower intake gasket replaced with another new one. Still antifreeze leaking into oil. Now did another check drained all oil out left oil plug out and just fill the coolant resevour up with coolant and without starting the engine up its antifreeze is pouring out the oil pan.what could be my problem?
