Engine went in, and i even managed to start.
my timing light didn't work so timing is off with backfiring but i got it close to make it run on its own. little bit of shaking but the carb settings needs to be done as they were fully rebuild.
20 minutes, no issues, oil pressure was always up to the top, temperature was good, no ticking noise, smooth.
So far very good.
Now the bad.
I have a leak from the manifold area, bolt 5 from the front and on.
gasket is new, everything is new.
NOW, i'm thinking going back the shop removed all the studs and i put new.
What i remember vaguely is that the shop said some broke and they had to pull them out, or maybe they put sleeves. Could this be the reason for my leak?
Look at number 5 from the front.
If that is the case, how do i fix this? is there a solution?
