    After sitting for a month or so, I ran the 330 GTC (1967) and after about ten minutes, this tank started to significantly leak antifreeze from the nozzle off of the neck. I shut it down, let it sit 10 minutes, started it back up and after 5 minutes, it started again. Do we think this is my thermostat not opening up? Any other things I need to look at? Thanks..

    Also, one more question- I might change the radiator and expansion tank caps- if I dont want to go original, does anyone know what I can use? I'd like to use the Stant caps...

    I would test for combustion gases in the coolant, possible bad head gasket.

    The problem could be caused by numerous possibilities, including one Ak Jim suggested or faulty pressure cap or ...
    Suggesting solutions without on-car testing is like shooting in the dark.
