i would be doing up the one you have. water in the oil is usually a head gasket, or cracked head, reco the head and put new rings and bearings in. Least then you will know you have a decent motor.

May just need a head gasket, however if you have done 400k then you should re-build the engine.

If you want to chase another engine sometimes you can pickup one through a wrecker, you can post your requirements here. This is not a promo for 1300 Wreckers, but it's a neat way to request a part and it goes Australia wide. There maybe a few GQ Engines sitting somewhere, worth a try.

should budget around the $7K mark for a rebuild (labour and parts).
