I've had oil in the coolant three times on Lazarus alone.
EVERY TIME I convinced myself into thinking it was the head gaskets.
EVERY TIME, replacing the oil filter adapter gasket fixed it, lol.
Take the top bolt out last and put it in first, to keep the gasket in place while you're doing it.
10mm bolts, 20 minute job, you will need to drain the coolant and oil.
This is a great time to add an oil filter relocation kit.
