Possibly a cracked manifold. If you were flushing the whole engine when you saw water at the carb screen it could also be a bad head gasket. Check the cylinders for water.

Ray I broke 3 head bolts removing the head as well! I had to redrill as best as possible and retap for the same size bolts! Or placing helicoils is another option and probably the better one.
