On this leaking plugs, the book say that bout 100% before 1969 will leak or ahve leaked and been 'fixed'. I have 1965 with the brass plugs, and they don't seem to be leaking, or I'm not checking them right. There was, however, a piece of what looked like very thick gasket material in the well under the plugs when I took my base plate off. Just laying there in the well like I woke it up from a long nap. didn't find any money or anything else in there, but was somewhat curious bout that piece of gasket, like someone might have put it in there and then put the base plate back on and clamped it down in hopes of maybe stopping a leak. I have no way of knowing, but it may be telling me I'm not checking the plugs for leaks right.
