I'd pressure test the water jacket before going any further. I had water in #3 replaced the head gasket, designed and built a new exhaust with a dry loop and water injection installed a diverter valve at the cockpit to divert the water from the manifold overboard while cranking.I ground and lapped in new valves to get the copmression up got it to start only to find I had a failed waterjacket. Engine will be good for parts.
