Default Coolant Leaking??

Hi, I'm new to this forum and am looking for a little help. Just some suggestions would be great. I recently replaced the cylinder head on my 1993 ford ranger 2.3l sohc and discovered yesterday that I have a significant coolant leak on the intake side up around the head. When it's leaking, it fills up around the no. 2 spark plug. I haven't had time to really go and troubleshoot the problem yet since I've been working long hours, but was hoping maybe someone could just give me some suggestions about what it could possibly be. Thanks.


PS- I'm a professional mechanic by no means, and this is as deep as I've ever been into fixing an issue with a vehicle. The only reason I attempted it is because I don't think the truck is even worth the amount of money they would've wanted if I had taken it to a mechanic.
