I am trying to determine what exactly the fluid is that is coming out of two head bolts
on the clutch side cylinder. It looks black and is sticky. If it is anitfreeze how does it leak out of head bolts. I dont think it is a head gasket because usually you have antifreeze shooting out of the bottle. And it doesn't loose antifreeze. Hmmm
Oh ya it is an 85 600 fresh engine.

If its black and sticky, I'd assume it would be an oil/gas mixture. But I'd still lean towards a faulty or cracked head gasket, or improperly torqued head bolts.

If the leak was between the combustion chamber and the head bolt, it could leak the oil/gas mixture out the bolt without any loss antifreeze. Just throwing out suggestions here.

On my arctic cat there are little o-rings on each head bolt,if your sled has that too couldnt the o-ring be broken?. when i assemled my engine after a overhaul i used new rings and had little blue silicon on them too. it seems to be ok now
