I'm thinking you've got a leaking battery.
More than likely it's the top cover that is bonded on to the bottom case.
That bond can be easily cracked if it's dropped or bumped real hard.

Dunno, that was so many years ago I don't even remember which auto parts store I got it at.
Just know it was a new one, not a re-man.

A 351W is not a good choice for '65-'66 Mustangs.
It's a much wider block than a 289 or 302.

Vacuum mod must be leaking fluid.

Losing a table spoon or two won't matter.
As per the good advice above, there is enough oil thought out the entire system to keep things lubricated.
