So, I've got a freshly assembled 351w. I noticed that I'm getting some seepage around the timing cover bolts. What is the fix on that?

Roll some silicone around the bolt shank closest to the head and reinstall them.
Or do you mean the leak is at the parting line of the cover?

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

I think it's at the bolt. Painting it black so it's hard to see exactly where it's coming from. I think it's at the lower passenger side bolt.

Are the holes in your block blind? If so, and you are seeing oil at the HEAD of the bolt(s), then I suspect there is a problem with your method of sealing the cover to the block. Or, a crack in the bolt hole in the block. Oil can enter the crack and work it's way up to the head of the bolt, collect there then drip. Seen that.

That's what I'm hoping that it isn't.
