[Healeys] Coolant leaks generator mount studs

Haven't built an engine in a while, but IIRC the generator mount should 
not be exposed to any coolant (it's basically a tappet cover with 
mounts).  Earlier cars had a blanking plate in that area, but it's 
probably just to cover the hole for a mechanical fuel pump and shouldn't 
be near any coolant, either.  Have you checked around the thermostat 
housing; they corrode and could leak?
