430 Scud- Normal to see this?

Just wondering if this is normal, if you look at the rail (fuel rail? Hell, I don't know) with the black cap on it (part that the sticker with the code is on), there is something that looks like it leaked.. it is present on both sides of the engine also.

Is this normal? Anything else I should be looking for up top?

Normal. Don't work about it.

They all have it to varying degrees. I think it is a discoloration from the brazing or soldering of the fitting to the rail.

If you are concerned about leakage, with the motor running wipe the area with your finger and smell your finger for traces of gas. Your nose will sense a much smaller sample than any of your other senses.
