antifreeze leak near carbs

Postby woodsrider1 » Mon Sep 12, 2011 11:25 pm



I have some antifreeze dripping out of an apparent drain line near the carbs. Only happens while the motor is at normal operating temps. Anyone have any suggestions on what could be causing this?

radiator over flow tube is there..maybe there is a hole in it..or your crossover pipes are leaking in the same area above the carbs.

I just fixed a leak on mine this week on the rubber hose that goes from the radiator fill neck the the overflow tank. It was just a pinhole and was hard to track. I warmed it with the false tank cover removed and was able to find it with a flashlight. Hope this helps.
