Leaking radiator fluid

Recommended Posts

Just pulled the 302. It was running great but it was leaking radiator fluid at the rear of the engine and dripping down above the bell housing. I thought that it was a bad freeze plug(s). With the engine out, freeze plugs don't show any evidence of leaking. Didn't look like any of the hoses were leaking from firewall. I cannot find any evidence of leaks from the motor. Any idea where it was coming from? Would you suggest new freeze plugs anyway???

I am going to replace all of the gaskets

X2 on the intake... resealing the engine is a great idea since you have the engine out.
