Engine problems

I have a 350 chevy in my scout, and it is leaking water where the engine and tran. bellhousing meet. water is pouring out of this area when i put water in the radiator. Is it the water pump, some kind of seal, or something else, please help. the water pump belt broke when i was in the woods and i did not realize it until it started overheating. I fixed the belt and drove it home , when i put more water in the radiator is when it started doing this...

Re: Engine problems

Sounds like a head gasket to me. Also some intake manifolds have water in them for carb heat. Maybe that gasket? Thats all that is back there. Check heater hoses also. Let me know I'm curious. Reclusej

Re: Engine problems

How overheated did it get? If it got too hot you could have burned your head gasket. even further and you could have warped your head. Hopefully it is just your intake manifold gaskets. You ought to get a buddy to pour the water in while you find exactly where the water is coming out. I put a chevy 350 engine in my scout with a TH400 transmission and there is enough room back there to unbolt the transmission from under the hood. What trans do you have (just out of curiosity) is there enough room to look back there maybe even with a small mirror? You want do designate if it is coming from the intake manifold or if it is coming from the head itself. If it is coming from the head make sure it isnt warped before you put it back together.
