Those are bad about the corners of the valve cover gasket leaking. And it is hard to tell sometimes. You should clean all around the valve cover so it will be easier to tell.

it almost seems like there might be a little hole right above the filter on the cast it looks like that plate behind the timing chamber comes off ill check the valve covers first then i guess pull the timing and everything off to see if there might be a chunk missin and quick steel it or something from the back side it doesnt come out with alot of pressure but do u agree the plate comes off?
