Have water leaking from bottom back drivers side head bolt.Does not seam to have a blow head gasket yet. No water in the oil. Maybe i can just retorque the head? Can't find head torque specs. Lokked on Turbo Regal site found nothing. Looking for head bolt torque numbers.

Factory head bolts are torque to yeild, so they shouldn't loosen.

I doubt the answer would be that easy.


Is there a plug missing there or something? How hot does it run? May have cracked a head.

I think your spell checker needs batteries

If this is a fresh motor sounds like the rebuilder forgot the head bolt thread sealer. Try and borrow a radiator pressure tester. Pump it up and make sure thats where the water is coming from.

Don't have clue how hot it runs all i have is idiot lights on my 86 gn. Have a new Be Cool radiator, water pump and a hi/lo fan switch, fan works in hi and lo. Still trying to find out were to put gauge sensor, for the water. I have auto meter gauges, water,oil and boost.Water is only one i not been able to hook up. Want to leave all factory sensors hooked up. Any ideas?

Just because i'm blind in one eye and can't see out of the other is no reason to pick on my spelling!!! Anyway now that i have the new raditor in it has stopped leaking, but you can see were it was leaking from the back bottom bolt. should i take it out and put thread seal on it now?

Sorry spell check was not for you. It was for PRSRIZD_V6 (inside joke)

Try some GM coolant sealing tabs first. I would not remove the factory head bolt.
