Water leak






I was diagnosed a 456GT which cooling water leaked in the course of touring.

Not unusual.

The factory hoses are garbage. It would be worth the trouble to get the Scuderia Rampante Innovations hoses from Ricambi America.

The big hose to the waterpump is actually a good hose but I think the SRI kit is only available as a complete kit.

Leaks

Looks familiar.

The thermostat housing on my car was a surprise to me. Found a small weep like you have there and found no o-ring left. The thing was only sealed by corrosion products.

The o-rings are a pain to get on the thing as well when you go to put it together.

Makes me wonder about the condition of the one behind the pump...

.

It's a long walk to the podium when the destination is not the top step...

That big hose was a 575M silicone hose, which, along with two other hoses in the plenum area of the 575M, are good silicone hoses. Likely only the large hose was swapped, though, so the other four are crap, like Brian said.


Nobody had brighter colored hoses? What material are those hoses made from?

No offense but I couldn't put anything that looked like that in a car.


I give Dave a hard time for his orange fuel hose but at least I can hide that on the bottom of the car.

Brian- I said they were amazing, not that I would put them on a car. They make black, too.

Dave Helms' hoses would have been the ones, if any of mine had needed changing.
