I agrre with Caseguy. In the third pic, it sure looks like there is an oil
shean, on the 2 upper fins, below the stud, that holds the lifting bracket.
That stud may be bottomed out.
Will, I don't think it is bottomed out. The HG could be leaking though for another reason. I made certain when I did the head that the bolts were all free well beyond what was needed to seat the HG. I had to use a tap on some of them to make sure I had enough threads to get a good torque reading. Each bolt was threaded into the hole before I replaced the head and measured to make certain. It is really hard to take pics of this. It looked like the HG was good to me but I'm going to have a closer look today. I was looking at the gasket itself and it could be leaking on the bottom side which wouldn't be as obvious. When I did the HG there was a lot of carbon buildup on the deck. I had to remove that carefully to flatten the deck. It could be that it was not flat enough. I re torqued the HG after running the engine for 15minutes. The most oil seems to be on the middle fins. The fan is blowing oil forward on the motor so that confuses things too. The valve side of the engine is clean. The cylinder side is where the problem is. Because of the way the engine mounts I can't get the Flywheel shroud off without raising the engine. I'll try to get some time to work on it today but it may not happen. Thanks for the input.
