Engine Mechanical problem
1979 Other Chevrolet Models V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 9000 miles
I have a rebuilt Chevy Small Block 350 V8 engine in my Hot Rod that has an Oil leak that shows up as oil dripping off the starter bolts. I redid the Intake manifold and I'm sure the RTV sealant at the back of the minifold is NOT leaking. Same for the valve covers and Oil Pan.
There seems to be Oill present at the head gasket area above the 2 rear exhaust ports on the right rear of the engine. I have been told that there is No pressureized oil in this area of the head/block interface but it's the Only place where fresh wet oil shows up?
Could it BE the head gasket leaking oil? Has anynoe else experienced this?
This is driving me Nuts as the car is a show winning Hot Rod and Oil Leaks are Not what I need.
