[TR] Small coolant leak

 Those off-shore valves are notorious for leaking.  That is a tapered plug in a tapered body.  If the tapers don't match precisely they will not seal up.
I would up soldering mine up.  It is now a screw-in plug.

Subject: [TR] Small coolant leak

I have noticed a small coolant leak from my TR3 and have traced it to the handle assembly of the water drain tap on the side of the block. Anyone else had this issue? It's a new tap and don't know what the fix might be. It's not leaking from where the tap threads into the block... Thanks in advance for any BTDT advice...
