With the head leaking right next to the water jacket inlet on the head, i think i was over pressurizing the cooling system. I blew half of it out of the rad. When i went to empty the coolant there wasnt much left.

Do you think 162 on the main might be a little lean? I was going to pick up a 168 , 170, 172 and see which one she likes. Also what are you opinions on engine ice? Ive never had a bike get that hot after 4 laps. I am going to use regular coolant this ... more »

thanks for the tip on the seals being backwards, i'll be sure to check it out. how can you tell if they are backward?

Added reply in a thread 1987 honda CR250 coolant drip 7/20/2016 5:55 AM

looks like the drip has stopped. just rebuilt the engine, crank ,seals,bearings, top end. possibly the seals just needed a bit of heat and fluid ? thanks for the info. if it starts up again , i'll get that water pump taken apart for inspection.
