That'* where I first experienced it. On my '77 camaro (bored to 383, of course, way back in 85).

That bolt looks a little dicey to get out. Looks like the base of the SC is hanging out there.

The 99 Old 88 that I replaced the LIM gasket had the same type of pool in that same exact spot.

Update. We ended up just replacing all the gaskets. There were a couple of other small leaks around the lower intake gasket. It was a good 2.5 hour job, but everything is sealed and cleaned up.
