Reviving a 74 midgit. I last posted about leaking antifreeze from the radiator 
cap of my expansion tank after a ride. I replaced the cap with a 13 Lbs cap and 
today after a 27 mile 50 minute ride  to and from work i had antifreeze coming 
out of the overflow tube on the expansion tank. I also have a broken temp gauge 
to make things more interesting. I checked the overflow when things cooled down 
and it is half full but the radiator is down about 4".  What is causing this?  
My plan is to replace the thermostat and the badly corroded looking crossflow 
pipe on the bottom of the radiator. is there anything else i am missing or 
should try while i am at it?  There does seem to be a small oozing of oil from 
the head gasket but not enough to reduce oil pressure or volume.
any ideas?
