Hi. Been trying to fix this for days. I changed the front cylinder head. But now I have been unable to seal the water connection to the front head, through that hose. I replaced the 0 ring, even put 2 in there, but it still leaks. Anyone come across an issue here??

O.K. thanks for that, gonna try it right now.
Well that did not work. Been leaking since then, try to ride it but each time, I get leaks. I put a new O ring at the steel connector into the cyl head. Even put the other O rings in the kit around the steel pipe, no seal. Even put in leak sealer with little flakes of Aluminum, still leaks.

I NEED help please!!!!!!

I hope it is me doing something wrong, but what is simpler then putting a new O ring in the hole and then pushing the steel pipe in. I need some expert advice.

It is simple so not sure why you have issues. Either O-ring is not seating right and jumps over the ridge on pipe or hole is damaged.

It sounds simple enough. Maybe the leak is elsewhere? Just like oil, sometimes it can be hard to find the true source of a leak.

Yes I know, guess I should try and get the specs for the O ring. But did not leak originally, so the hole should be good.

No specs necessary, just use the OEM o-ring. If using an aftermarket o-ring, that may be the problem.

So I found the problem. The O rings supplied with a full gasket set, where the wrong size!! I took another gasket from a spare head and it is much thicker. What a total waste of my time. Grrrrrr.....
Thanks for all your thoughts
