Core plugs

Post by tomrose » Wed Mar 09, 2016 7:58 pm

Hi,
My tiger has had a small water leak from the back of the engine since i bought it about a month ago and now it's dumped all its water
As they are such a tight fit and this is the first one Ive owned I can't tell but could it be a water core plug behind the flywheel as the drip was coming from the bottom of the bell housing
Any help would be much appreciated
Many thanks Tom

hi,there are no core plugs behind flywheel.there is one on the back of the cylinder head the same as the one on the front of the cylinder head,it maybe one of them leaking,you might be able to view it with a telescopic mirror.if I remember right they are inch and a half in diameter.
