have you ascertained it's deifinitely coolant?,

I dont know the layout of the 360,

does any water circulate below the waterjacket?

a few knowledgable 360 owners on here may point you in the right direction,

good luck,

Charlie

Change the seal,removable bush on the shaft and both the bearings.I tend to find the play in the bearings and worn bushes, causes the coolant to get in there.The same layout exists on the present WR250/300.

Gday Nick,

Had the same problem on my 360 yeah its the seal in the water pump pull the pump off and change both the seals and the little oring as well, your local husky shop should sell it as a kit its not a big job to do, i found that the hoses took a couple of rides to stop weeping so check the hose clamps.

Gasitt!
