it seems to be coming out at resevoir nipples and overflow nipple. they are quite loose in their mounting locations. can i just use some solder on these? will it hold with the heat and pressure? anyoneelse dealt with this. the hoses are tight on the fittings its the fittings are actually loose like the welds have broken. any little bit of help is great, and those who've had this issue PLEASE chime in.

:thumbsup:

finally running again and this is just a minor issue. though with hood open if i goose the throttle you should see the upper radiator hose collapse: looks like the vacuum being applied to it is VERY strong.

Aren't the tanks and nipples plastic? If not you can solder them that's how a repair shop would do it.
Is that upper hose old? If so replace it.

I'm assumming you tightend up all the hose clamps

If there is a leak pull the tank and replace it with a new one
