After having problems starting, where the plug was getting wet, I had my suspicions that there was water on the plug. Today I removed the left hand exhaust, tipped it up, and about a pint of coolant poured out of it. I'm guessing I must have a fractured outer casing in which case it looks like I'll be looking for a new proper unit. Unless anyone has another idea how coolant could be entering the motor? Thanks Ray

Could it be a freeze plug? That happened to the first RE5 I had back n 79. Freeze plug went and coolant got in the motor.
