Question Engine rebuild progress and woes...

I have had to do a top overhaul on my cylinder heads because of a miss threaded spark plug. This of course meant that I had to remove the engine etc. once I got the engine re installed, I noticed a serious leak in the middle of my radiator near the bottom of the fan. I was not aware of having done anything to the radiator when I stored it flat in a box, but I checked all other potential sources of leaks and donít know what else it could be. There is also an oil leak that appears to be around my starter (probablygaskets). The issue I am having (other than the radiator leak) is that I cannot seem to get the right amount of tension in the clutch after adjusting the cable numerous times. Any suggestions?

Radiator - Probably a job for the radiator shop, or get a radiator from ebay, quite a few listed right now ... https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...rt=nc&_ipg=100

Clutch adjustment is touchy. Follow the manual, but I had to adjust until it pulled slightly with the clutch held, then adjust until the drag just stops.
