Enough waiting.  Thanks to all that responded.  Hope you had a little
fun and will prevent any anxiety attacks for those not experiencing this
before.  Apparently some think we should already know this.  I had three
correct answers from 42 responding.  If you can divide a stewardess up
three ways, she's all yours.  All you have to do is get her away from

It was the 4 inner exhaust/intake manifold studs.  The holes are in line
with the head bolts.  The previous owner put in studs that were too long
and as the holes are drilled all the way through they bottomed on the
head bolts before they bottomed on their shank.  Correct studs have been
installed with sealant to prevent oil seeping out. (good call Barney).
Hell, I figure with the longer studs acting like set screws, I could run
15:1 compression!!

Hope all your LBC troubles are little ones!
