Should I remove the bolts, put some sealer on them and put back? Seems to be leaking very slowly over time. This is only occuring on the center bolts of both sides, the front/rear are not leaking. This is a factory cast 2bbl manifold. Or maybe don't even worry about it :confused:.



Thanks! :D

Closer inspection, looks like the leak was originating from the 2GV carb base gasket, running down the side of the manifold below the carb and settling where the bolts are. As I'm rebuilding the carb and replacing the base gasket, this should be resolved. Thanks!

oil leak..

If the carb was leaking fuel and it ran down and mixed with the oil it would certainly create a mess....hopefully you are addressing the carb issue as well.
