I had to chisel off the oil pan, timing cover, intake manifold, water pump, and valve covers. Oh and he also used the yellow snot on the distributor also.

If it was a Ford 'Y' block, that's about what it took to stop the always deformed valve and valley covers from leaking. Then there was that external oil pump tube.
