we got a leak!!

Me n my buddy been workin on my engine for the past week. We got it all back together and started to put fluids back in and coolant started to leak from the front of the head. Where the radiator hose n manifold hoses meet the head. Im pretty sure we f**&d the gasket up. Any other words of advice???? Much appreciated! !!

r u talking about the thermostate housing that the top radiator hose connects to on the head. If so sometimes when replacing the thermostat it can fall out of the nerrul in the head andget pinched between thermostate housing and head causing leak

If it's the t-stat always replace w/ a fail safe one so that u dont damage the heads.
