2000 Cherokee XJ 4.0L V6: overheated, rebuilt head (mag'd and pressure tested ok). Put rblt head back on and runs well but now water in oil. Pulled head and had it checked again; still ok. Gasket appears to have good compression marks indicating good seal. Did not put locktite on #11 bolt though. Could that have caused this? Anything else besides cracked block?
