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?
