I use alumaseal powder it works very well and quick...

I sealed up my heater core on my old Dodge Cummins 10 years ago still holding on leak...

My old B tracker was dripping water between the engine and clutch housing I figured it was a freeze plug leaking used alumaseal and fixed it right up that has been around 15 years back...

Yesterday I used on my H it had it was dripping antifreeze from the lower right side of radiator could have been a tube or the tank sealed it up in 10 minutes...You might give it a try before you start pulling studs you will only be out around $3.50 or so...

The best way to use it is run the engine with no radiator cap or with a very loose radiator cap till water is hot or circulating in other words till the thermostat opens...Then add alumaseal tighten radiator cap and run the engine till leak stops works pretty quick but run the engine at least 30 minutes to an hour that should be long enough to fix all the leaks or seeps in your cooling system...

A couple problems with a F20.... First its not a pressurized system so loosening and tightening the radiator cap does nothing, they are thermosyphon, so no water pump to circulate it and no thermostat either. You could seal radiator leaks with the powder and guys do, but getting enough of it up into those stud threads may take awhile.... a very long while . Coat the stud threads with sealant and be done
