The cap seemed to be ok and not sticking...but what the point that Bmcecosse is making about the head gasket?

Thanks chaps for your helpful suggestions...Cam, I thought the water was from the blown seam in the radiator...but didn't know why it should happen...Perhaps Bmcecosse has a point about the head gasket...but how would I know? :roll:

Hi Cam,
wouldn't it be easier to get a replacement...the seam is gapping...so don't think pressure checking will help... :oops:

Hi Willie,
