Adam thought your photo was a radiator hose. So did I, actually. Now I see that it is your radiator water neck. Either way, Adam is right - it looks like rust. I have rust in the coolant in my Cobra conversion - comes back even after I flush the coolant. I would recommend doing a coolant flush, then use two bottles of Rust Fix from Prestone. It's supposed to coat the bare metal and prevent it from rusting further.

(See..I told everyone it's an epidemic!)

:eek:,dont say that.

true Adam,head gaskets are cheap,but it's the time and labor replacing them that's the killer.
even though i love working on my car,i'd hate replacing something like that and not having the cash too upgrade while i'm at it:mad:

94cobra#519,that suck's,but you'll get it running:nice:
