Answers :

This one is a little different and harder to diagnose....as you said it has locked the engine....this is called hydraulic lock and is due to water NOT being compressible......so if the engine is locked what further damage has this caused ?????

\015\012I have seen conrods bent and vales damaged due to hydraulic lock......I would suggest having the cylinder head removed at least to inspect.

\015\012If somone advises you that all you need to do is to replace intake manifold gasket, and let the engine sit for a few days as the coolant drains out of the cimbustion chamber, they are offering you ill advice, and you should be wary.........
