Water in the oil.

I have an 08 yfz 450. The antifreeze seal blew and then water got into the oil. I ordered the seal kit and installed it. But when I replaced it and accidentally put the seals in backwards and within 5 mins of idling. It started leaking water out the bottom water hose. Does the seal have to warm up like once to stretch. I have it idling again to see if maybe that was the problem. Oil seems to be fine. But it has only been running like 10 mins. Would putting the seals in backwards matter.

Think something inside the motor is cracked and water is leaking thru inside the motor some where.

Head gasket most likely. Or warped head. Over heating these is very bad. No seal will mix oil amd antifreeze except the head gasket that I am aware of.

PoPo in the making!

I posted on this before and they said that the water seal normally bust and then it bust the oil seal. How hard is the head gasket to change. I am gonna look for a forum post on here to check it out.
