If I understand you correctly, water dripping out the pan drain does not sound good as it should be floating on the oil. You should not need sealant on the head bolts. My 850 developed a crack in the block between the sleeve and block. It was repaired and new sleeves put in. You can do a pressure test to see where the leak is. Pull the pan and connect your air source to the water pump and look for water/bubbles being blown out between the sleeves and block.

Hi Old, Thanks for the correction. I was going from what I've seen such as when I drained my 850. It appeared that the oil came out first and that the water was sitting on top of it in the pan. I always understood oil to be heavier than water. I guess I should have examined it closer. At any rate, water in oil is a problem.

Yep water in oil not a good thing. Think about what happens to water in the sediment bowl of a tractor. You see the water on the bottom and the gas floating on top. Oil does the same thing if left sit a few hours so that the oil and water separates. If left long enough like that you can drain antifreeze out of an oil pan and if careful even save most of the antifreeze to be used again.
