I agree with Lars

Lars would be correct. This is a common problem for that engine. When you pull the heads to replace the gasket make sure you have that head checked for trueness. If it is warped the same thing will happen again. If warped the head can be milled down to make it perfectly flat again.

If water is in the oil for too long bottom end components may be rusted.
