I was bushhoging and hit a limb with the upright tail pipe and it bent backwards, I bent it back up straight and went to the barn. The next day I noticed a water/antifreeze leaking from the back edge of the motor where the head gasket is. I have no water in the oil. I have no steam coming from the tail pipe which is up. I have only started the engine twice to move it around (take off bushhog etc) and with each start the leak is worse. Is this a blown head gasket or some damage to the block by bending the tail pipe????

If the leak was indeed caused by the accident as you suspect, it sounds liked the forces applied to the exhaust manifold may have cracked the cylinder head at or near one of the manifold mounting bolts. I don't see how it could cause a head gasket leak without damaging the head.

so if it is a cracked head,I assume I will have to replace it. Will this cause a water leak or water into the oil?

Your post of 7-24-2008 stated that you have a leak but it's not getting into the oil. If the leak is external only (none getting into the oil), my suggestion would be to pour a can of condensed (not evaporated) milk into the radiator. Unlike many commercial stop-leaks, condensed milk is totally water-soluble so it doesn't risk settling or congealing somewhere problematic but when it hits the air, it congeals and seals. How to use? With engine cool, take radiator cap off, run engine until you see the hot water circulating in the top of the radiator, then slowly pour the contents of the can into the radiator and let it run long enough to mix thoroughly. Replace the cap. Use the tractor whenever and however you normally would. Check the coolant level and oil level before each use for a while. If it works out good for you, be thankful. If not, a cracked head can sometimes be welded. Wish you the best!
