    Header bolt.

    With sealant. And don't use Indian Head unless you never want it to come back out. :poke: :lol: Now let me see, what sealant is good for coolant or liquids? How about some pipe thread sealant or some silicone. Let it set up before you pour the coolant back in.

    Possible. Somehow coolant is getting into a cylinder. Pull all the spark plugs and examine carefully. The clean one will be the bad cylinder. It could be a cracked head as well.

    White is coolant. Blue smoke is oil. Black smoke is fuel.

    318 hard start when cold

    With a manual choke you have to do everything the automatic choke does, well, automatically. It's a lot of fiddling around. The choke system is quite simple but you must understand how it works.

    Clutch Free Play adjustment

    Every piece of linkage has a bit of free play in it. All that play added together plus the gap between the t/o bearing and the PP fingers will equal the pedal free play. If you adjust just the pedal free play and don't pay attention to the t/o-p/p you can run into issues. There is no specific...
