    The most common places for these motors to have internal leak issues are (depending on exaust types) , Camshaft caused "reversion" issues , incorrect plumbing for headers or logs, intake manifold gaskets (wrong type vs manifold type) , excessive block pressure or as you suspected rusted/erroded or improperly sealed timing covers and water block off plates More info re your particular set up would be helpfull Tom

    Intake manifold, turkey tray gaskets = leaks.
    Pressure test the exhaust manifolds, they like to corrode at the riser/log flange.
    Reversion, induced by cam, or ineffective exhaust flapper.
