I was thinking yesterday that the P38 has been pretty reliable recently and it has now decided to reward me with a coolant leak. Not just a normal coolant leak from a hose, it's coming from the around the bottom 3rd head stud on the passenger side bank.
The engine was fully rebuilt a few years ago with top hat liners, ARP head studs, new gaskets etc. As far as I know there's no coolant passages from the block to the head in the middle so it must mean I've got a cracked block or a cracked head? I can't seem to find much evidence of Rover V8s with cracked heads. I've seen cracked blocks before but I thought generally they cracked behind the liner which lets coolant into the cylinder rather than between the block face/head gasket.
Has anyone seen anything similar?
