Cooling fluid leak

Postby ST Phil » Mon Jun 12, 2017 9:35 pm

Just flushed cooling system, removed radiator, replaced water pump and put everything back together cleaned and looking great. Added violent so I could recognise future leaks. Was using water and was a bit incontenent from water pump seals.

1952 Sunbeam Talbot 90 mk2 (Humber Hawk same OHC engine)

Now found new problem of concern that hoping somebody can advise on. Now there is coolant coming from the carberattor overflow placed beneath carburettor and between inlet and exhaust manifolds so running down onto exhaust.

This does not seem right. Is this a gasket problem? Any advise appreciated from this amateur mechanic.

Ran again today and no leak. It is now a mystery. I will run further and advise.
