    If the motor did not quit spinning due to the water try a can of K&W Block seal. Follow the directions on the can to the "t". I have seen miracles with this stuff. We all get in situations where we need it to last a little longer and this will do it.

    I agree with Brian dont get to ahead of your self.

    I had a similar occurence , water in the oil - I was dead set it was a blown head gasket(s) at minimum.
    I had all my tools out ready to yank both heads and the cherry picker handy, just in case.

    I slowed down after pulling the intake and did a close visual inspection on the gaskets.
    Whollah! found one gasket that had been leaking. What a relief.

    Luckily I didnt get to carried away as I didnt have either header off, nor the V/C's.

    Point is a: It's never a bad idea to be prepared for a worst case senario, but then agian, dont fix what aint broke either.
