Hi folks,
I was just servicing the sparkplugs and coolant when I saw a ripping of paint on de head of from cylinder, just above the headgasket.
The same way the radiator paint is also tearing apart.
It doesn't seem to me a paint job fail for its own, but something caused by a leak. Help will be highly appreciated.
By the way any color code for the engine repaint?
Thanks

My initial thought is that there is a coolant leak which, being a good paint stripper, removed paint at the leak. But I have a feeling it's not that simple. Why 3 apparent leaks ?

+1 Normal corrosion. Wirebrush and wet/dry it down to bare metal free of corrosion and slap some Hammerite on.

I agree it looks like normal minor corrosion....wire brush and repaint.
