    i'd start with a cooling system pressure test... than a leakdown...

    more than likely that head will have to get yanked...

    been there man....

    how long has it run with water in the oil?

    that will kill a bearing faster than running it low on oil.

    I was gonna say its probably the intake seeing as its not stock and had to have been put on... I had that problem with my 355 bad, intake gaskets were old and i didn't change em when i put the new manifold on. never ran it more than 10 minutes all together with water in the oil and it wasn't alot of water but 2 inches sounds like a hell of a lot of water.

    you probably know this but don't reuse the intake gasket... get new ones for 12 bucks otherwise you'll be right back where you started.

    first off chill... i wasn't trying to offend you... I don't know how many motors you've built cause i can't read minds over the computer. second, your looking at him... i reused my intake gaskets for 2 reasons... one, the motor had barley been run and two it was the first motor i've ever worked on at least in a truck.

    I now know that the motor not being run has nothing to do with being able to reuse gaskets, and also to question my dads knowledge every now and then.

    I asked him if we should use the brand new felpros and he said "no it should be alright" but his mind was pretty damn scattered that day.

    I've learned alot since then.
