    My bad, I was referring to the header flange bolt hole. I suspect the oil is leaking out there, was there is only remains of burned oil on that side. I was wondering if there is a was to fix this without taking the head of, but I do not know if there is a sealant that will work without cleaning the threads on the head?

    If not, I guess it can wait until winter and I'll remove the head to try to fix it.
