i have a 85 rx7 with the 12a with 160,000 miles on it. i just bought it from my buddy and it had been sitting for a year while were were deployed. so were tryin to get it back up and running and we ran into a problem. everytime i put coolant in the radiator it almost immediatly runs out of the small drain hole thats on the bottom of the bellhouseing. i think that he just left straight water in the cooling system and then parked it for a year. so any expert advise would be greatly appreciated to hopefully get it back up. i have a feeling that the water just rusted through everything and the engines shot. that or a little while back we had some weird weather and we had snow and freezing rain for a couple of days so it coulda also cracked the block. im gonna drop the tranny and flywheel to futher investigate but i just wanted to know if there was some little quirk that these engines had. any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks
