Since it seems to have gotten water while setting, it"s possible the water pump is the problem, I would check that angle first, if it"s possible to get the oil pan off do so and pump the radiator up a radiator tester, then look for the source.It could be a leaking liner too.

I agree on checking the water pump as it's driven off of camshaft/timing gears

Thanks for all the replies! I'll check the water pump first. Glad to know it's gear driven. That could be where the coolant got in there. It hasn't been cold enough to freeze it this year and it had been tested to 20 below zero.

It didn't run but about 3 minutes altogether after it started blowing steam out. Just long enough to put the hydraulic cylinders in the transport position.

The coolant can measure -20F and be no good. The corrosion inhibited is just as vital in a wet sleeve engine. , If the inhibitor is depleted, the sleeves will cavitate pin holes.
