Default Coolant leak

I have a 87 305 that is leaking coolant in the back of the engine. I looked at
the freeze plugs and they are dry and all the coolant it running farther back
on the driver side. Hoping it’s note a cracked block but can anyone give me
ideas?

more than likely the aluminum intake manifold is eaten out at the back
passage. get a mirror and pressure tester to be sure. KB

Head gasket is a possibility.

Nothing astonishes Noddy so much as common sense and plain dealing.
