Intake manifold oil gunk.

What is this when you have oil on one of the intake manifolds. One slightly more gunky the the other 3.

I Noticed it when I fixed a bolt in the cam rocker before. its only on the second valve back. I never bothered to clean it that time but now I have the engine apart I am pressure cleaning the bananas to see if it reappears.

I was hoping it was from left from the bolt that come out of the rocker and would have dried by now.

Cool stuff thanks. Just took it apart and found the totally gunked out filter inside. Was not expecting to see a filter inside the cap.
