78 Corolla Water In Engine?

If the head comes back good.
Is it possible the water is coming from the intake manifold?

I don't know what engine is in the Corolla, but my son had a problem with water in the crankcase of the 20-R engine in his truck (this engine is found in other Toyota applications as well). After a good bit of soul-searching and engine tear-down I doscovered that the timing chain follower had worn out and allowed the chain to slap the side of the timing chain cover until a hold was worn in an area in which coolant circulated. This allowed coolant to flow into the crancase. What a mess! The repair entailed replacing the timing chain, cover, follower and gears, as well as cleaning out the aluminum filings in the oil pan. Appearantly this is not an uncommon problem with the 20-R and 22-R engines, if you let your timing chain follower wear too much before replacement.
