Restoring a 120 C, complete off the body with a full engine rebuild. A trial start up with the engine etc.in the chassis. Went well, fired right up. Ran it 5 min. Broke my arm patting my self on the back. The next day I noted a small leak running down the side of the engine block from the third from the rear manifold stud. Took off the manifolds and the stud was leaking around the threads. The stud wobbled a little when almost completely in this prompted a Time Sert sleeve insert. Refilled the radiator, gasket sealed the threads and the leak is almost nothing but still there. Suggestions! thanks
