Thumbs up new engine oil leaks

Just got my new engine running. This is my second build. I had plenty of problems getting it to start the first time. Finally got it going. Never was quite sure what was wrong.
Took it for first breakin ride. leaking oil at head gasket and where the muffler attaches to engine. Maybe oil mix wrong? Also vibrates a lot after it gets past mid range speed. Vibrates and sounds like it's going to let loose. Sure a lot different than my first engine, I ran the first engine over a year. Used it a lot.

AND the 2 front mount studs broke. They were smaller diameter than my other engine. Any thoughts on this. What a bummer. I guess I'll try to get the broken pieces out and drill and tap to lager size.

I know this is 3 problems, but after searching forum for hours, thought I would post for some directions or thoughts. thanks to all that help on this forum
