    Never saw white smoke. No oil in the water. Oil reservoir was a overfilled. I have been adding coolant recently.

    good sign, so I think no headgasket


    also good sign, so again no headgasket because the oilpressure is higher than the water pressure

    bad sign, water is going into the oil

    also bad sign that water is going away into the oil because of overfilled oil reservoir

    I would say leaking water pump - or somewhere a crack in the block or in the heads:(

    good to see this damaged seal. so you may be sure 99 % that the water was coming from this seal into the oil. so no worry about more
    1 or 2 piece seal? I would take what you have and will match

    It looks like you have a bad water pump problem.
    Did you check the bearing behind the oil seal? Looking at the oil seal, water has been seeping into places it's not supposed to be. I would assume the bearing behind the oil seal is bad.
    Unless the water pump is assembled correctly, water will seep into the wrong areas, destroying the oil seal, bearing and into the crankcase.
