I finally got my 89 kx80 restore semi finished. Started it tonight and noticed I have some coolant leaking either at header gasket and possibly base too. When I put it in gear it bugged horribly like running out of gas. would a small leak cause this? Just wondering if its isolated to this possibly or I have other issues too....

Most likely it's the head gasket leaking and allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and cause the running issue. ANY COOLANT IN THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER WILL CAUSE RUNNING ISSUES.
