Look for black stuff in the manifold and intake ports, black streaks thru the sealing area of the old gaskets, and uneven compression of the gaskets.
There is black stuff in the runners and on the top of the valves. They all look the same though. I could'nt tell much about the gasket because it ripped apart when I took apart the manifold. I put it on real good the first time, thats why I have my doubts about it. Note that all my plugs were always a light tan color.

Thanks.

Before you put the manifold on, loosen the rockers and check bottom of each lifter, just to make sure .
What do you mean bottom? I would'nt have to worry about the manifold to do that right?

If you had the intake manifold off, just for fun, loosen all valves and remove pushrods, pull one lifter at a time and check the bottom of the lifter. Look for worn or concave lifters, meaning you have lost one lobe and as well as a cam. Just looking for trouble here. Be sure to put back into same hole lifter came of.

Put the manifold on with a new carb. Not fixed!
