water in crank case - Atomic 4

My Atomic 4 is a 1975 with an Obersdorfer water pump. With about 1 hour of use, I noticed a few days later when I check the oil that I took on 4 liters of water! (The head gasket was changed about 4 years ago.) I did not notice any white smoke (steam), the plugs were dry, and the engine operated as normal. The water was very clear. I hear about the water pump seal, and the exhaust maifold in addition to the head gasket. Is it easy to check the first two before I go thru the head gasket again? I have not checked the compression yet.
