coolant leak to oil

I just bought an 04 6.0 F350 lariet crew 4x4 drw 145k for $6000 it was not running I found it wasnt building oil pressure, loosing oil out a missing freeze plug in the head. Replaced the cooler and did egr deleate primed the oil rail. And it ran great but when i went to flush cooling system it was filling the crank case with water. I looked at the options of cab vs engine. Decided to pull the engine (3.5hrs) the water seems to be coming from the center but i cant see where exactly. Planning on head gaskets and studs what else should I look for any areas prone to cracks?

Oil cooler is brand new (assumed good) dont think I cut any gaskets on the install... am I correct to say injector cups would leak to combustion chambers not crank case? It is a fast leak so it may be a cracked head

And I forgot to ask has anyone found the v-band clamps for the turbo aftermarket? My local Napa ordered them twice both wrong both times... hate to go to dealer for the clamps.

A hole on the front cover behind the water pump is likely.
