I just built a 350 with a holley system 2 aluminum head and intake combo .
Engine runs great, but when I shut it down you hear what sounds like water boiling in the top end. when I checked the oil, It was milky, but smelled like fuel.
Oil level was not over full,no white smoke out the pipes and no excess pressure in the radiator. WHAT AM I MISSING ?????

MAKE SURE THAT SOUND ISNT THE CARB NEEDLES LETTING FUEL BY.I HAVE HEARD THAT SOUND WHEN YOU SHUT IT OFF LOOK DOWN IN THE CARB AND MAKE SURE YOU DONT SEE FUEL RUNNING INTO THE INTAKE. THIS ALSO WILL CAUSE THE FUEL TO GET IN THE OIL.
