Help - Oil & Water Again

I have oil in the water again after changing the oil cooler seals. I have several questions:
1) Could it be the oil cooler again if the shims were done incorrectly?
or
2) Does it sound like a head gasket?

3) If it's a head gasket, how difficult is it to replace or is it just time consuming?

4) If there is not water in the oil, does this show a head gasket problem?

The car is only driven on test drives on the weekends for 10-15 minutes. I donít see any drop in the coolant, but this could because the car is not driven much.

Have you completely flushed out the cooling and oil systems when you changed the cooler?

Are you getting the chocolate malt in the tank or is it trace amounts of oil.

If yes, and the shims were done incorrectly, you could still be leaking

Coolant loss through a head gasket will be exhibited by a visible leak, or white smoke out the tailpipe

I looks like the coolant in the reserve tank has the oil mixed.

I will drain the oil this weekend and see if there is any water in the oil. When checking the dip stick the oil looked OK, but I want to confirm this.

When running the car their is some white smoke, but I think this is normal condensation buring off. I don't see any white smoke after the engine is warmed up.

The car sits all week for now and is only run on the weekends when working on it.

My goal is to get the car back to a condition where I can drive it every day. The car had quite a bit of problems when I purchased it, but figured that it would take $1,000 in parts plus my time to restore.

Hi,
Long time Porsche owner, first time 924S (944 motor owner)

Is there a decent write up on replacing the oil cooler seals?
Im have the haynes manual, tools, time and talent.
Just dont know where to look to begin the repair.

Is the oil cooler seal in question mounted on the "front" of the engine behind the timing belts?
If so, is there a standard list of parts for a front end repair?
Belt, idler, belt, belt, water pump, oil cooler seals, ....etc.
If there is a good source for this common repair (at least I am told it is common) that would be great.
