A 3/4 gap? Sure hope that isn't in inches or you really have problems!

Gap was a 3/4 inch piece of missing gasket.    So the leak was about 3/4 inch x 1/32 inch!

Aah, that would do it. This situation can also arise if the proper procedure hasn't been followed when reinstalling a cylinder. The base nuts must not be tightened until the intake manifold has been temporarily installed w/o gaskets and tightened. Then cyl base nuts are tightened and intake manifold removed and reinstalled with gaskets. This insures that all intake ports will be parallel to the intake log.

Someone had applied hi-temp RTV on mine in an attempt to compensate. 

Glad you solved it, thanks for sharing, happy flying.
