i would say head gasket first. thes pop before anything else. you can rent/buy and atuomotive cooling pressure tester. pull the pulgs from the heads. pump only up to the psi on the rad cap and you will find your leak.

Base gasket, cracked cylinder, cracked head, cracked case, and remotely possible crank seals. Hopefully its just the base gasket.

what sled and what year is it , how many miles are on it and what cylinder is leaking you say exhaust side but is it the mag side center or pto side????

if its the side your mag side , the starter recoil is on then start looking at the water pump seal and bushing

Base gasket,

Hopefully its just the base gasket.[/b]
After 2 different ''coolant thirsty'' occasions last season (second one being B/gasket on both, first one being inner o-ring in pto cyl), I sure as hell didn't need to see this Tig,,, slaphappy (btw, it's completely cured now)

yes, hopefully, this would be the cheapest/easiest route from here on out
