I finally got my '68 Lightning running last weekend. New carbs did the trick. My problem is a persistant oil leak form the lower front timing cover hole. I have pulled the inner timing cover two times to check for any problems and have not seen anything. I used hymolar to seal the inner casing to the case since it appeared that I wasn't getting a complete seal at the leaking point. Is there any sealant I could put on the threads that would help? Thanks for the help.

Use loctite stud retainer or thread locker, it seals the threads as well.
