Sounds like you could have sucking thru straw symptom on the suction side of the oil pump. Is it possible you loosened or blocked the oil sump pick up tube when replacing the oil drain cover on the bottom of the engine?
If the oil sump pick up tube to the oil pump has broken loose where it enters the oil pump casing, then it could be sucking air at this point and creating the bubbles in the oil.
Just my guess.
