E30 316 problems

Hey guys im new to the site and am interested in becoming a part of it.
I own a 1985 e30 316, which is the carburettor model of the 318i. i bought the car with a blown head gasket and am fixing it myself. i got the head shaved and bought the expensive valve regrind kit, anyway its all back together and running but im still getting problems with milky coloured oil and also a high idle. Im getting the car serviced and tuned soon. But if anyone has any input or advice they'd like to share it'd be greatly appreciated..

Cheers Finlay
