New head gasket leaking
New head gasket installed,bolts torqued to specs and in sequence.When started the engine and let it warm up shut it off and noticed oil leaking from the passenger side bottom of head near drive belt. Was there a spray or sealant I needed to use before installing head to block?

I dont bother with any spray usually, are you sure its not coming from your cam seal?

did you have the head resurfaced?

did you reuse the head bolts?
