    Water behind intake manifold/rotary valve cover bolt

    Guys, I was removing the stock IM from my 96 xp only to discover one of the bolts stuck. Not being surpirsed I did the natural Shadetree Mechanic thing, just turn it harder, to have the bolt head come off. Long story short, when drilling the bolt out I found there was water behind the bolt. I researched this in the shop manual to find that cooling water only flows through the cylinder sleeves and not the crankcase.

    Sooooo, WTF is up with there being water behind that damn bolt?

    There is a "pocket" behind that bolt,if your not gonna tear it apart you can just put 1211 or gasket sealant on the bolt when you put it back together.
