I had a cracked block on a Detroit between the liner and airbox. Coolant came out the crack and filled the airbox. It was much worse when the engine was hot as the crack opened up. My motor had to be junked. I chased  a lot of the likely problems before finding the crack. Take all of the inspection covers off and take a look around with a flashlight. That's one possible problem.
Ditto on this been there done that.Had to get a new block and start over guess this is a weak spot with 53's

Number four cylinder had a pinched o ring. Its still in the shop ive been down 3 weeks now. The blower had to be resealed also, And the valve seals. I have been depressed for the past few weeks not getting any work done and no money coming in. I sold some split firewood off the landing and what ever i could retrive with the pick up to substitude some income. Things like this makes me want to go back working per hour for someone. But thats the name of the game. I got a few backhoe jobs to hold me over next week and im hoping to have the engine back in by next friday.

did they do anything else ?, check the rod and main bearings ? piston rings? anti freeze is quite hard on these parts , seen way to many main bearings spin on the crank after anti freeze gets in the motor oil and it does not take much of it .

No anti freeze got into the oil just in the air box and blower. All the bearings are brand new. The motor had new bearings and pistons and sleves put in it last year.
