Smitty says: That's exactly what it is Andy. It may be a measurable
leak and it may be a tiny leak that will never cause a problem. A lot of
time when the engine "grows" to operating temperature a leak like that
will seal itself. You may get a whiff of exhaust fumes in the heater on
starting that goes away quickly. On my engine I would pull the head and
re-gasket just for safety reasons. Especially since it is out of the car
