Where\'s the oil getting out from ?!!!!
I'm losing oil which is collecting on top of the timing chain cover
Those little recesses on the left and right sides of the top of the timing chain cover, just below the intake manifold, keep filling up with oil. It takes weeks, but they refill themselves regularly.
I've got brand new FelPro Permadry Plus valve cover gaskets and they ain't leaking or wet above, below, back or front. The air cleaner box seems to soak an oil breather filter every 2000 miles, I change the oil and filter then too.
Where the heck is the oil getting out of ?? Could it be the dist shaft O-ring ? or the lower intake to block gasket ? The new longblock 302 was put in 3 years and 20,000 miles ago.
