    "houston, we have a problem"!!!

    Hey guys. I think I have a bad situation. I had finaly finished the build that I have been working on for a year. Yesterday, I started adding the 50/50 antifreeze/water in the car. After getting about 2 gallons of it in there, it started leaking at the seam between the bell housing and the engine block. What do you guys think?

    Hi Jeff. I'm not sure what you mean. A buddy of mine thinks a may have forgotten to put the bolt in, in the back of the head. That was part of the new build, new heads. The fluid is coming from the passenger side of the engine. It wouldn't surprise me at all that I forgot the plug on that side. I am going to check it tonight though, so we will see. I sure hope that's it and not something worse. Thanks for the reply Jeff. I really appreciate it.

    There is a coolant cross over "port" on both the front and back of the cylinder heads on the intake side. Did you remember to plug them or install a coolant cross-over?


    Here is a pic that shows the LS1 coolant cross over. In the top right corner you can see the coolant tube, follow it to the cylinder and you'll see where it plugs into the cylinder.






    In this pic you'll see the LS6 coolant cross over tube, unfortunately the tape on the heads is covering the coolant plugs on the back.

    Hi Scott. Thanks a bunch for the input. That was one of the things one of my buddys asked me. I am almost a 1000% sure that I had the coolant tube on the back end of the heads. I'll bet you that what I forgot was the drain bolt on the backside of the passenger side head. Because that's where all of the liquid is going. It's raining down on the passenger side headers. Hopefully that's all it is. Thanks again Scott!!
