    Leaking coolant out the overflow pipe

    Hey guys,

    I have an RXT X 255, stage 3 or very close to. I am leaking coolant out the overflow pipe. Some one told me last time i had a blown headgasket, I have since then Done nearly a full rebuild including Head gasket, all bottom end , cam chain, everything. I took it for a ride yesterday to test it, leaking out the over flow again WTF.

    Has any one had this issue, are there any alternitive radiator caps on the market that are beeter then the original i can try.???

    Allan

    You might post in the 4 stroke section. They have a large following compared to others this time of year.

    Did you have the head checked out to make sure it was flat when you took it off?

    Do you know if the engine is getting hotter than normal?

    If your head gasket was bad, your head could be warped. Therefor a new head gasket is still going to leak.

    The head was decked when we put the new gasket on. It was done by a specialist here

    Are you sure you're not just over filling it
