1923 roadster

I am working on fixing up my 1923 roadster but just have a few things that are driving me nuts, and it is a water leak from the water neck to the intake.

What engine? What intake? At the intake does it seal with a gasket or O-ring? Need more info

Basic generic info.

The mounting surface of the water neck should be flat. Check/correct this by placing some medium grit emory paper on a sheet of glass (or any other known flat material) and lightly sand the water neck flange checking to see that all the flat surface has been cleaned up. Use a new gasket with a good sealer. I like Permatex non-hardening brand.

If the water neck has an 'O' ring instead of just a paper gasket; then apply a liberal amount of Vaseline (petroleum jelly) to the 'O' ring and install. Check the 'O' ring for cracks and/or breaks and replace if necessary.

In either style, be sure that the flange of the thermostat is fully seated in the intake before installing the water neck.

Tighten the mounting bolts (or nuts if using studs) evenly and torque to specs.
