I think it is the valve covers leaking rather than the main seal since it is leaking from the top down and the wet spot is no where near the rear main. I dont imagine that's too hard to fix, cant I just rtv that?

You can if you want. I would just torque them down. Valve covers are easy to deal with. If something is leaking just tighten them down and they usually quit leaking.

Well I'm going to spray degreaser over almost every damn inch of that motor and spray high powered jets of water at it to see if I can pinpoint something. Can you over torque the bolts?

Okay I'll do that before I go pullin valve covers and layin down rtv. I swear FEs never seal with gaskets. I'm half tempted to rtv everything but the exhaust gaskets ... I also need to pick up a set of them

I sealed up everything with high temp rtv when I built my engine. I would save that set of gaskets clean em up and rtv both sides. I re use my valve cover gaskets when I'm at the mud runs. Right after I swap tires in the pit I take the valve covers off and check everything out. I only do that because every now and then I will come across a bent rod or the roller rockers are screwy. It just became a habit.

Well the problem with one gasket is it looks like it was just a piece of plastic with crappy holes cut in them. Almost like a patch job. The other one is fine, but id rather no exhaust leaks. Sounds better that way

Yea, Well then you might wanna go and get another set of gaskets. I don't like putting rtv on with no gaskets. I know that sounds weird since its gasket maker but I always put it on my gaskets to make it seal better.

Well I've heard not to use rtv on exhaust gaskets. If I take the headers out I'm also gonna paint them. I liked how the rustoleum road runner came out that hot rod did a couple years back, I'll probably do the headers like that. I love 70s street machines so that's perfect.

Oh no. I only use on thing on exhaust. It goes on like a paste and the once heats up it turns to a glass. I can't remember the name of it. I can look around in the shop tomorrow and see if I still have any and I'll give ya the name.
