    Top of the spark plugs (white bit) will be a rocker cover gasket, not so bad.
    Bottom of the spark plug (electrode bit) is worse, head gasket, rings stem seals etc.

    rocker/cam cover gasket.

    if you take the plugs out to change them the oil will drop into the cylinders. it'll smoke for a couple of minutes when you start it up. it's ok tho.
