Its either a cracked head or head gasket. The compression test showed all of the cylinders to be very low...like 15-25 on three of them and like 45 on the other. Added oil to them and the compression did not rise any. That kinda told me that either the rings were fine or the were completely gone. ;)

So...I added water to the system to see if the head gasket was blown...left the plugs out too.....We slowly watched the cylinders fill with water. :( I turned the engine over to blow out all the water and squirted in a lot od WD-40 to keep the rings from seizing.

What to do now??? :cwm4:

It would seem you are correct in your assumption. Pull the head. Have it decked too if you don't find a crack. With all the cylinders filling with water, I suspect a warped or cracked head.
