Hi all I need some help. I was doing a 12 volt conversion and removed the gen and top bracket from the head to put on the bracket for the new alt, (the front 2 nuts on the right side of head). I then saw coolant leaking between the head and the gasket from the area under the studs where I removed the nuts from the studs. Do I need to replace the head gasket now or can I retork the nuts with new bracket attached. I drained the coolant to be on the safe side. I just got this tractor and I dont want coolant in the oil.Why cant I leave things alone Thanks for any input.

some of the head bolts do go into the water jacket. you can retorque, but be sure to use some non hardening permatex on the threads to avoid leaks. RP

I think what happened is when I was removing the nuts I loosened the studs from the water jacket is there a way to tighen the studs with out removing the whole head ?

If there's enough thread exposed screw two jam nuts onto the top of the stud and tigthten them against each other. Use the top jammed nut to screw the stud back into the block. Then un-jam them and replace with the stock nut.
