Welcome to CC! Delkron cases have a drain hole in the case to drain the oil from the top end, stock cylinders drain the oil through a hole in the cylinder wall. If you have cylinders that are set up to drain through the case and are using a stock base gasket no oil will be able to return to the bottom end. Has this engine been running and this just started happening or is this a new build?

No, if you have cylinders that have the drain holes in the side of the cylinder wall that's fine, only the stroker motors use the case style drain, if you're below 84 inches you probably have the cylinder wall drains. When you put the heads back on did you make sure that the oil drain holes in the head gaskets were lined up correctly on the cylinders? Did you replace the cylinders and/or make sure that the drains were clear?
