Ok, finished her up last night and runs MUCH MUCH better. Went ahead and did the VC gasket while I was at it as well since she was leaking. Found out that it wasn't the parimeter of the gasket, but the spark plug well seals on the middle of the gasket since the valley or under the cover it was full of oil and as it over flowed it ran down the outside looking like a typical VC gasket leak. I just replaced these gaskets and the VC gasket a year ago and is this common for these to fail? Maybe the middle VC bolts loosened up or I didn't torque them properly last time. Just curious?
Haven't had a chance to take her out yet, but on start up and running for a few didn't see any leaks and idle was great. Hoping to drive her for a few to reset the SES light.
