88 1500 coolant leak..

Postby sloepoke » Tue Jul 01, 2014 4:39 pm



shop wanted to charge me 6 hrs labor to replace the leak from the thermostat gasket - I changed that and the thermostat and now have a leak onto the rear brake side. coolant is collecting on the head. I am suspecting a hose or clamp (as i have seen many say clamps were issues) friend wanted me to remove gas tank. think that has to go down.. does not go up on my 88 1500 and carb. Is there anything I should be concerned with about removing the carb. I see the rubber it appears to be connected in. looks like there is some kind of a locking mechanism on them. any info would be appreciated..

Read to drain the radiator as there is a coolant line in the carb. have the lower plastics off already.

As Virgilmobile discovered, plan to replace a few vacuum line/elbows if you do pull the carbs...and take pictures of what goes where when you remove them. It's a forest of rubber tubes under there.
