Re: Oil leak(s)
Really sounds like it is leaking from the rocker axles. That drips down the side of each head from the axle (middle of the head) and collects on the bottom of the head as you show in your picture. Clean around the axle and put some of the talcum powder or foot spray there, then investigate after flight.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Thoroughly cleaned suspect areas Removed scoops and ran engine up to temp.
Noted oil collecting on lower rear of each head. Oil seems to be coming from above (circled in phot 2).
The closest oil carrying item near is the oil feed T piece, but this new and after removing clips, looks good.
I’m resigned to removing the heads unless someone has a better idea.
No evidence of leaking pushrod tubes or oil feed pipe to T piece.
I’m flummoxed !
