    Do you know if there was any added or used in the radiator on a regular basis?
    It's the anti-cavitation additive.
    Could not say for sure but it may be a possibility that you have some damage to the cooling system. That is major.
    It may be cheaper to buy a remanufactured set-up than rebuild.
    If there is block damage you will be SOL on the rebuild.(I think)
