started ski for fist time this year.running great.Only thing i noticed was water coming out from one of the head bolts.of course i tightned it and its still leaking.motor is about 2 years old.never had this problem before.
1. should i be concerned
2.do i need just a new bolt and washer
3.could the head maybe be cracked
4.could it be a head gasket thats bad and forcing water out of the bolt

any info will help.i dont want to run it until this is fixed.

You need to pull the head off and look. A leaking gasket is usually pretty obvious, and this gives you a chance to look for cracks. Replace the gasket, and getting the torque correct is important, so use a torque wrench.

Thanks.That what i thought.Now what i dont know is do i need to replace just the head cover gasket since thats where the wwater was coming out or the cylinder head gasket or both.
