RCWaldo : Top of engine is completely dry. Even the tops of the cylinders. So it looks like all of the leakage is occuring on the bottom of the cylinders.

The case is fine, and yes I did follow the torque pattern and specs. This looks like a simple case of not having all of the information regarding the required seals for this particular set of cylinders on an older case.

The engine is out, and disassembled.

Tomorrow I'm going to order :
Top end gasket set
The head gaskets that go on top of the cylinders - I'm not going to re-use the brand new ones that I just pulled off
Copper base gaskets
The 999-707-152-4 o-rings.
And a set of nuts and washers

What else do I need to order, what am I missing? We're gonna try to turn this around and have the engine back in the car by next weekend since I have an event coming up in 3 weeks (Sept 10). If we can get it done by next weekend, that will give me time to break it in, take it to the dyno for a tune, and be ready to roll.
