Here I Go Again Part 2!
I swear to God one more thing happens to me on this thing and I will SELL IT!
What the HELL!
Today I take it out and it starts leaking coolant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I thank God I noticed it quick! I had to put some cold water in the reservoir from the cooler AND go to the ramp to go the gas station and get some coolant. I thought it was because the coolant reservoir cap was not tightened all the way but NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!
I put 50/50 mix of coolant/water and it keeps leaking it slowly somewhere!!!
What the HELL!!
What do I do? I cheked the two hoses coming out from the reservoir and the small one is not leaking...don't know about the thicker one, gotta dig in deeper...I did hear a sound coming from the inside like water/coolant is hitting a hot surface....What other hose/thing can I inspect?????
It's only doing 67.3 now!! And Im down 300 rpm! I am hoping it was from the hot weather...88deg water 93 surface.....
I really do not want to go the i/c and new prop 14/19 prop now....what the hell will happen next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well there might be a underlinning problem.
Head gasket? Maybe?
Do a comp. test as with loss of coolant and RPM's. That worries me!
You will need a 12mm adapter for it. Autozone sells a kit that has the 12mm adapter with the compression tester for $40 bucks.
Let us know.

I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Can you post a link of what I need so i can pick it up tomorrow water4fire?
Man, $150+ and 4+ hours spent changing the oil over and over I thought my worries were over.......

G: check to see if the ride plate is leaking? there would be coolant lying where the pump bolts up.

See if your thermostat is wet maybe it broke the seal ?
Hoses on the thermostat ?
Did you do the 158 mod ?
Look at the pump see if you have green stuff next to it.
I'd try that pressure test.
I think you'll get this figured out.
