Guys as some of you have seen doing a bit of engine work on a mates 65. I recently replaced the intake manifold gaskets and thought it was the end of the leaks but it was still leaking oil from front and rear. after alot of thinking and Argh i realised that there were no washers on the bolts. Does it require them? I have also read that they can be different lengths but these bolts were all the same size? so was thinking if I just find some washers then it will solve my problems?

Were the bottom of the holes clean? Could have caused the bolts to bottom out.

Have you run a straight edge over the top of the block and the heads to see if anything is warped?

You could also try using some lead wire (or similar) at some even intervals when you torque the heads down and measure afterwards to ensure they are pulling down evenly.

Both solid ideas will look tomorrow with a straight edge, I didn't even think to check it to be honest i just ASSUMED that it wouldn't warp since its cast? but thats my bad.

Does it appear to leak as soon as it is running or after warming up?

Is it just weaping or streaming?

Got a general vicinity for the leak - I mean other than under the hood, in the engine bay somewhere :rotfl:

Head Bash lol yeah it was definatly leaking from the front and the rear instead of using the cork gasket on the intake, I used that gasket maker stuff which is really good. its slowly leaking out, I am sure the fact its missing washers is a problem in itself.
Also noticed the timing cover was leaking coolant from that water jacket into the head, and oil leaking from the front of the head so thats what made me strip it right down. I think thats basically every orifice covered except for the sump which I will tackle tomorrow and then I think we can clean it up and test it out and if there is more leaks Argh

Ahhh... don't worry about the washers - just chop a 1/4 inch off the bottom of each bolt and she'll be right mate!!!

Bow Down theres another idea I had not thought of lol plenty of time to look and I like having his stang in my shed makes me feel less anxious about my own. Might try to get it here more often... just not under these conditions.

And then as every quality mechanic knows you absolutely MUST take it for a test drive - you know, just to make sure it is running right and there aren't any strange squeaks and noises coming from somewhere it shouldn't...

i have heard that this is something that is often done to help seal the intake manifold. i remember Nassi talking about it a long time ago. saw this on my engine when i pulled it down.
