Streetmaster Intake leaking oil from the intake bolt?

I put a Streetmaster on my 428 about a month ago. I keep finding a small pool of oil in the area around the second from back on the drivers side intake bolt. This is one of those bolts that is hard to get a wrench on because it is so close to the runner. The bolt has a washer on it (ARP intake manifold bolts set.)

Has anyone had this issue, and if you did, how did you fix it?

Your flat washer isn't conforming to that intake runner. I took the washer on mine and ground a flat, then put some sealer under it. No more leak. I found mine when I pulled the dipstick and had a gallon of water in the pan. My car cover wasn't waterproof and the rain went in through the left front corner of my 68 1/2 hood scoop. I didn't have the stock ram air air cleaner on it, just an open element one. Where oil can get out, water can get in.

Followed your suggestions of grinding a flat side on a washer, then put some "The Right Stuff" on the intake side of the washer, and went for a test drive. No leak now! Thanks!
