.....is what I said when I pulled the 2V carb off my 67 289. When I removed the gasket between the spacer and the manifold the recess in the manifold on the driver's side was full of engine oil!! I did notice that the gasket had a torn hole (maybe when I pulled the spacer?) immediately behind the driver's side bore. Anyone have thoughts on how this oil got there?? Is there something I should be doing before I re-install the carb I rebuilt to prevent this?
