    rxpx ride plate leaks

    I just put a rxpx back to closed loop after running open for a while and the ride plate is leaking (it was never removed) did i read somewhere a while ago that there was a prblem with the bolt length on these? or is there another issue to look for

    Cheers.........

    I just removed the bolts on my plate and put some right stuff around the hole and screwed them back in... fixed the leaks.

    Most people think that cause is from the bolt being to long and it bottoms out before it is tight. Simple fix is just get some stainless steel washers and put them under the bolts that are leaking. You do have to drain the coolant to do this though.

    the bolts were a little loose and 2 were leaking so removed them sealed under the bolt flange and pressure tested to 15 psi and all good.
