MGA coolant loss after driving........

Subject: MGA coolant loss after driving........

I just noticed over the weekend that every time I get home and park the MGA 
after a little driving that after 3 or 4 minutes i have a small leak of 
coolant on the driveway. I just had a rebuilt engine installed and a new 
radiator as well. I believe the leakage may be coming from the overflow valve 
on the radiator. This only seems to leak after the car has been shut off for 
a few minutes. I don't notice it when its running (I checked for drips when 
its idling). Its not a big loss of coolant but its a small puddle. Any ideas 
on this one guys? I have a 4 LB PSI radiator cap installed. Should I go for 
the 7 LB one to curb this problem? Do you suppose its just releasing pressure 
after the engine is shut off ? I am a little dumbfounded on this
