Waterblock leak - Page 2

post #11 of 37
I have that block except in Plexi/acrylic top

Just take it apart and clean up the seal, it probably pinched somewhere


If that doesnt fix it, they messed up the block and milled the C channel where the Oring sits, was cut too deep - RMA.

You don't void the warranty by disassembling the block.

so no sealant then?
Nope. Sorry, take it apart and see if it is a loose screw or possible a gap in the o-ring inside the waterblock...

You can't mess with stuff like that, not worth putting your Rig in jeopardy...

Your going to have to carefully remove the block and buy a new one and send this one for replacement if you can't wait..... This is after checking the stuff like the guru's said,,, gl,,

is there an easier way to take it out than to empty my entire loop?

edit: how do i take it apart? There are no screw holes.

just open it up and check the Oring. most likely there is a bit of flashing that needs removal. wash it all out good and put it back together. Make sure not to screw down your screws too tight but make them nice and snug, when you screw it down make sure to use the "corner to corner" method, This will make sure your base gets evenly tight.

It has screws in it somewhere to take the base and the top apart, where is it leaking from if its only one part?

Check the o-ring and screws like the others said. If it's a pinched o-ring or the channel is kinda messed up you can use sealant but you have to be careful.

Fill the o-ring channel with rtv. Copper automotive grade that you can get a napa or other auto part stores. You want to make a custom gasket so you want to to stick out above the copper surface and you must let it get fairly tacky but not fully cured before you put the top on and tighten it down. The rtv will harden and create a great seal. I did this with a block of mine and haven't had any problems.

AKA Alien Wrench or Allen Wrench at the hardware store.

Unscrew all of them evenly or else you might crack / fissure something. do the same when re-tightening.

and yes, you need to dump all the liquid from your loop in order to perform any kind of maintainence on a block.
