Stuck my fingers down to see if any oil was present under the gasket seal and I got 3 fingers worth of fresh dirty oil. We be leaking. Doubled the washers, seemed to squeeze more sealant from the surfaces. This is real crappy bandaid work man. It does remind me of the preload required for new gaskets though. Only found one seller with what he claimed as actual Victor gaskets in packaging. Inspected the cover and we do have a small porous spot but it barely squeaked past the paint so it is not the leaky culprit. I just need to splurge on real gaskets when I can, I will take pictures to compare.
