I do hope your referring to the vehicle 1992 Legend and not your own Head. Acura Legends are V6 equipped motors there would 2 "heads" I'm assuming the water is present when the oil filler cap is removed This is a serious indication of which I recommend having your Legend inspected (Dealer service or Qualified repair shop) for any damage or needed repairs.

what do you mean water tank do you mean expansion tank for radiator did you flush the system when you did cylinder head as there may be some gunk left in rad or engine also there is a comon fault with the gaskets you can buy you have to buy the better ones as cheap gaskets dont seal properly also is it a automatic as the cooling system for the gear box goes into the rad there could be a small leak but its usually a seperate part to the rad
White smoke usually does mean water is getting into the combustion chamber, and often the result of a blown head gasket or cracked head/block. Water in the oil will look like a milky substance on the dipstick, and again usually means blown head gasket or worse. Sudden acceleration does not fit with this pattern, however. Please provide more detail as to when this occurs.
sounds like blown head gasket or cracked head allowing coolant into exhaust ports. No water in the oil just means it didnt affect water getting into the oil ports. So the breach is between the water ports and the exhaust ports. It doesnt really matter. Its till the head gasket or the head itself. sorry..
Can not be water pump, because that has a vent hole to the outside, and does not at all allow access to crankcase or cylinders. Oil cooler is also unlikely because oil is under more pressure than the water, and it would not get into the cylinder. Water in the cylinder means up high. That means head gasket or cracked head. You can tell with a leak down test. You borrow the gauge from a place like Autozone, and replace the water reservoir cap with it. Over pump it, about 30 psi. And watch for leaks. If same cylinder keeps filling, then you know where the bad gasket or head crack is. Diesels often crack heads. Not hard to do, but new head is not cheap. Probably $500 for part, $400 labor.
