Sorry to inform you, but you probably barked up the wrong tree.

Water (coolant) in the oil is usually the sign of a failed water pump seal. There are seal kits available or you can just order a water pump from Honda.

What bothers me is the water coming out the spark plug now. This is a sign of a head gasket issue. It is possible you messed up that repair. Did the old head gasket show signs of a break or path for coolant to leak into the cylinder......should be visually obvious. If the first head gasket did fail, you need to verify the cylinder and head are perfectly flat where the gasket sits. If not, you may need to resurface one or the other.

Be VERY careful cranking the engine over with the starter until you figure this out. Enough coolant in the cylinder can cause it to hydro-lock and can bend a connecting rod or worse. Use the pull start to turn the engine over a few times, if it doesn't try to lock up, then it should be safe to use the e-start.
