Fumes inside

After reviewing the note from David Chapman about how the fan will
create positive ventilation in the engine compartment and then if the
seals are not in place or in good shape, exhaust or other vapors may
be pushed inside the passenger compartment.

I took a look in the engine compartment, the seals around the
firewall look intact and in good shape. I did however find a
rectangular cut out about 6 inches wide X 4 inches tall just behind
the valve cover in the firewall. Is this hole supposed to be there
and if it is should it have a door.

Hi, yes there is a door there. I have one on my bulkhead. Guess it must
be for clearance for valve cover removal. Seems some fumes just leak in
when top is up, normal to smell oil fumes ????
