I have an annoying leak that seams to be coming from the head gasket area. The engine has been rebuilt recently and ever since it seems to consistantly leak oil, as soon as the engine is warm and the rpms are brought up above 3500. We have tried 3 different gaskets including a copper one with no significant change. I have visually inspected the areas around the studs, all seems ok. The leak seems to be coming from the front left side, the valve covers were checked and they are dry, so I don;t believe they are the cause. Also the exhaust threads were redone at the same time. Any ideas of what may be causing this, one upside of all this is my boots are now completely waterproof, and if I ever run out of oil, I could just squeeze a pint or two out of them.
