No worries! So replace the collars at the hose, and check the fuel level then potentially pull the carbs. What is the head gasket check? I can check the oil in the site glass, to see if it is a milkshake color...
Yes, if it's milkshake when cold, it has a problem. Just remember, this engine has milkshake just after starting, until full warm up.

Not running, water/oil will settle out and separate, so might have to drain it to see.

The oil looked nice and dark (changed it 40 miles ago), with no oil/water separation. What would you inspect next?

Check spark plugs after a little running? Look for water droplets.. or steam cleaned look.

Oil dark at 40 miles? Is it Castrol?

Yeah, I used castrol. After it got to a 1/4 of a tank, it stopped leaking, and the coolant stopped leaking. I just filled it up, no more flooded cylinder, no more leaking fuel. I just went 40.7mi today and the tank is still full. Looks like the seafoam has done it again. I need to replace the coolant that has leaked out though.
