I have a rebuilt 429 that has not been fired up yet. I have filled the coolant system and it has been setting for a few days now and I have a noticed a drop of coolant coming from the front of the bell housing. Since
Sunday it has leaked about 4 drops. Is this as bad as I think it is? Crying or Very sad

Start it,it might seal itself off. Check oil and radiator after it makes heat cycle.

X2 Might be coming from the intake and down the back check good on the back of the engine at the oil port for the gauge and see if you see anything back there if not might be a head gasket seeping a little might stop after a heat cycle or 2

Pressurize at and see if you can find where it's leaking. Pull the plugs too
