How long before a 85 300TD suffers overheating damage due to coolant loss?

1.My engine overheated to max guage with all the spectacular overheating effects for maybe 5 minutes.

2. How much damage did I sustain to the head in terms of valve seal damage, etc. ?

3. (This time I replaced everything, the water pump, thermostat, and hoses. Finally I found the leak at the front cylinder head passenger side, where two bolts attach at the cylinder head and the junction can be hard to seal without a handcut thick gasket.)
