Question coolant leak

help! i found coolant in the intake on the front cylinder. are there coolant lines going to the carbs if so which ones are they? if not are we talking about a blown headgasket or a cracked head?

I had a coolant leak in my front cylinder on the base gasket. If it's pooling up in the inside curve in between the front and the rear cylinder it's probably just the gasket that needs to get replaced. Expensive none the less but I wouldn't worry about the whole engine going bad.

And are you sure it's not leaking down from the cap or thermostat.
