Default Re: All to common coolant leak at the intake manifold

@ Eskimo619

Thanks for discussion & foto. A daunting R&R given all the attachments.

I recently brought a used DOHC head to a machine shop for repair,
with the cam cover attached. The shop put the cam cover through the cleaning bath, and it removed all the crud from the oil dispersant ramp in the cover.

I think the Dorman spout fitting flange has that warp as a consequence of
the part suffering thermal stress when the flange is welded/brazed into
place. They'd be more expensive if were milled.
Dorman stuff usually works ... they may be relying on the gasket to take up the slack, but flat is Better.
