It takes a LOT of liquid to hydrolock and engine. Maybe your timing is waaaay too far advanced ?
Any gasoline dumping out of the plug hole after you pull the plugs ?
You can bet your cookies that if you are getting THAT much fuel that it is contaminating the HECK out of your oil and washing down the cylinders and rings bigtime.
