Coolant in the oil

After overheating my 1986 vulcan
Die to over revving it because my clutch was slipping, I put a new clutch in, but now when I tried to fill up the radiator with coolant it runs straight into the crankcase. It will completely fill the engine. Can anybody tell me what the most likely problem is?

replaced the clutch, now coolant goes straight into the oil?

what parts on right side did you remove for the clutch replacement? all that should need to be removed for replacement of the steel plates and the friction plates is the round cover.

if you removed the right side cover, you likely have a bad gasket, or bad o-rings on the coolant pipes
