Hello, everyone, I have a 350 crusader that is leaking water from the fresh water cooling system into the flywheel cover. Is there freeze plugs behind the cover or would the block be cracked or something else? I just replaced the intake manifold gasket and the leak wasnt there before. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Hello, I suggest you pressure test the system. If you put 20psi on the system you should be able to see the leak. Cool

I fixed the leak from the flywheel cover,it was just that I had too much water in the bilge from my garden hose while working on the boat and the flywheel was pushing water out of the cover. However, I am still losing antifreeze from the cooling tank. I am bringing home a glycol tester today from work so I can see if its mixing with the cooling water and going out the exhaust.Thanks for reply. If I have a hole in the antifreeze tank where is the cheapest place to get a tank? I have seen these for $800.00-$1000.00 dollars.
