that's how they kept the oil from seeping through the porous engine case castings.

It is called "Glyptol" and it is used for sealing pourous cases and also for oil run off-it is avail through eastwood-a quart was $40.00 and an aerosol can was $40.00 (u figure out which is better). It is brushed on and then baked in an oven to cure. Works pissa-i even did my trans case with it. Good stuff!-Cheif
