one might drain the contaminated oil...and do a compression test...to see if there is leakage...then have a replacement put in there...from a junkyard car-part.com will get you a used one....heads, block...etc...if needed...but running without oil until a cracked block happens sounds pretty bad~

That must have been a pretty deep "puddle" for you to get water in your oil. It would have to have been high enough to enter through the intake manifold. If that is all that was done, draining the oil was a good thing to do. Just put new oil in and see if it will come back to life. I suspect that the water you found in the oil may not have come from the puddle incident and it was already in there from a prior defect. The puddle probably just shorted the electrical system causing it to stall.
