Okay got 2 04 700 both needed motor work one is perfect now and runs as it should, the other needed a head swap due to the previous owner cracking it either from over torc or heat not sure but replaced everything and its running like it should. I went to top off radiator and it filed the case with water/antifreeze. Now what I'm wondering is why. its been in my shop running for short periods while I got other problems it was having straighten out. I checked oil every time i started it to be sure that wasn't happening. now i got everything fixed it filled case. Do yall think the mech seals went bad just like that? OR is it possible The other head gasket? I'm bought to light it on fire and push er down the road. ANY advice is much appreciated

pull the spark plug in both heads.
bring piston to top dead in suspect cylinder.
get coolant system pressurizer.
bring up to 14lbs and see if the gasket leaks into the cylnider.
saves tear down if that is not the problem with head gasket
