Smell burning oil in cabin
 
I can really smell burning oil in cabin onfmy 330 sc. I have changed the rocker cover gasket but doesn't seem to have improved it. Any ideas???

Do you mean valve cover gasket?
If so there still may be oil on your headers that is burning.

Yep, I mean valve cover gasket. Losing oil also though. Just not sure where from?

well it might have or might not make a difference. but any oil leaking anywhere and burning off you will smell.

no wait! there might just be some residual oil that was accidently dropped on your manifold when you were servicing the valve cover gasket.
