    Oil leak maybe? It looks like the gasket is sticking out quite a bit from your valve cover

    I had the same 1st thought.. old school cork is easily overtightened, even with load spreaders.

    not the valve cover gasket, know that for sure, im gonna just pop it off tomorrow and see, problem i started having is it starting to get hot real fast, ive checked all the plugs and they look ok, and motor seems to be running really lean the last couple days,thought it might had been the carb but had it rebuilt, ill snap a couple pics tomorrow once i got it off

    oh yah, if you look real close at my valve cover, i had to trim it aLittle when i was running a team G intake,
