Whats your Solution to those pesky oil leaks from intake manifold bolts? Have used thread sealant a couple of times but still have one bolt that leaks. Any suggestions welcome. Have Aftermarket manifold on a 238. Thanks

An aluminum or copper sealing washer under the bolt head can work too.

lots of thread sealers are soft set. the oil or gas can soften them more and cause a leak. i would normaly clean the bolt and hole with brake cleaner and use some sort of formagasket.
