    Sounds like a gasket between the water jacket and the engine internal spaces is not sealing somewhere. Did you re-use some gaskets when putting the engine back together?

    Were any gaskets torn or damaged?

    Right now, you need to get that water OUT of the engine, especially the crankcase, before anything starts rusting.

    You can run the engine without the hose for up to 15 seconds at a time. Take the spark plugs out, make sure there is no water coming out the plug holes when you crank it.

    Then try to get the engine running enough to swish the bulk of the remaining water out of the engine (without hooking up the hose). Shut it down after 10-15 seconds, take the spark plugs out, let it cool down. Clean the plugs if they are wet.

    Then run it again for a short while, bursts of throttle to move lots of air through the crank case. Don't over rev it, of course.

    Then spray fogging oil into the carb air intakes when it is running. Shut down, remove spark plugs, spray fogging oil into plug holes. Hopefully that will be enough to keep it from rusting, while you figure out where the water leak is.

    make sure you don't turn the hose on before you start the engine or you will fill it up with water

    Doublecheck gaskets between exhaust manifold and cylinders.

    Did you mount the exh manifold to the cyls before tightening the cylinder base nuts?

    You may have damaged the gaskets.
