My intake bolts on my 66 289 have the original lead washers on them, they are split and broken, I was going to use a 5/16 lock washer on them but started thinking why they used the lead, does it keep oil from coming up around the bolts? what type of washer should I use?

I would think the lock washers would affect the torque on the bolts and you will end up with them installed at the wrong torque rating. If you're worried about them backing out, use some Blue Loc-tite on em, and just a standard flat washer.
