Another thought I had was to bolt on a block-off plate to replace the carbutetor. The plate would be drilled, tapped and fitted with a Schraeder valve (tubeless tire valve). Back off all valves so that all combustion chambers are tight. Low-pressure (5 psi) smoke could be admitted to the intake and seen coming out the oil dipstick tube if there was a leak from the manifold to the crankcase.
