Figured while changing the pan gasket I would check out the draft tube, is there a way to tell if its plugged ? if so whats a cleaning procedure ?

I have never cleaned on on my Chevy's but with the folks 38 Buick I pulled it, soaked it in cleaning solvent and then added a drop of gasoline and lit it up. Cleaned it well. Probably not the thing to do. The Buick had a screen in side,not sure that the Chevy's do.

Yup, That's the way it was done back in the day. Burning it clean was fast and fun too.
