Have a 47 C that is leaking coolant around one of the two bolts that attaches it to the cylinder head. Any ideas?

Thanks for the tips. Looks like the copper washer stopped the leak.

As Jeff say IF and that came be a very big IF. If you can not do so with out braking it which happens 75% of the time you can some times stop a leak like that with silicone sealer. Clean the area up real good then slap a good coat of silicone sealer on it. Nice thing is the silicone is easy to clean off when and if needed and will seal a good number of leaks like that

If you can get the bolt out put a new copper washer on the bolt.

Goop Sealant and Adhesive also works real good.
You can get Goop at a hardware stores or Home Depot.
Cover the whole bolt head and surrounding area.
