Yelp they seem to be good gaskets. Also I ordered the O-Ring today. GM called it a distributor cap O-Ring and they were right on the name. So when the weather starts to warm up I am going to replace that O-Ring and see if it fixes my oil leak.

Mine doesn't have a distributer on it but there it a cap or something like that has a bracket with a bolt holding it down and I am hoping that is where it is leaking oil from. I am only guessing here but I think they had used a universal engine block for the distributer based model and the electronic ignition model.

Yep. It the O-Ring don't work I will just use some RTV on it and hope it will work along with checking the lower intake while I'm in the general area. Also I did some calling around and found a machine shop that can pressure test the lower intake along with checking it to see if it is warped. They said if it is warped and not cracked the can machine it down to make it true again. Also if it is only warped I will have them hot tank it along with getting the upper intake hot tanked to get rid of all that carbon build up.
