I was winterizing alpha 1. Had it hooked up to garden hose

Customer Question

I was winterizing alpha 1. Had it hooked up to garden hose and running great to make sure thermostat opened before I drain the water and refill with antifreeze . All of a sudden smoke started coming out back by starter motor and the motor just shut off by itself. Ckecked oil, normal temperature. Opened up drain plugs, warm to the touch. Any idea what may have happened. Water pump? Ken

Hi Ken, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

What year and size is the engine? YOu said the motor shut off by itself. Will it restart? Will it crank? Do you have any power if you turn the key to start?
