Re: Decked Block and Heads, now Intake leaks
I have 461 heads milled .0025 and my block was decked .030 on my 350 with an alum intake. The question I have to ask is... did you use the front and rear gaskets when you did the assembly ????
I was told not to because of the same problem you are going through. Run a bead of the black RTV sealent instead of the gaskets. You can see how my intake sits on the block and heads in my Sig Pictures without those gaskets.
sealant is always better!!!!
the rubber end seals usually leak....
Remember,I'm not making this stuff up!
