How bad is this engine?

Isuzu 6 cylinder engine. Blowing a lot out the breather and a bit oily around there too. When I pulled the dipstick when running it was like it was bubbling in there but not blowing out into my face if you get me. Started first thing with 20 seconds of heat. Then after about 5 mins of running turned off and turned on again and started first thing.

Not smokey out the exhaust but just breathes a fierce amount.

Don't know the history of the engine but it's about 40 years old at this stage. Probably rebuilt at least once at this stage.
It's in a machine just wondering about the condition of said engine would ye thiink

What’s the oil in the sump look like after it’s been running, milky white?

I meant to add that the oil pressure according to clock was very good. It was blowing very heavy though. I wonder would hard work be the making or finish of the engine?
