I agree - it sprays everywhere.
My cambox/head area was dripping. I ferared the worst, altho had not touched it during the job. Then the cam chain housing plate seal was dripping, I feared I had made an error. Then the whole of the warm air box on the headers was dripping. So, it gets hard to track the source.
I did as Mark suggested, wiped it all clean, lay under the engine while running, with a torch.
Guess what. Nothing.
Took it for a drive again - I could see the oil trail on the road.
I will drill a hole in the box first. Hopefully a pool of oil will drop out. The headers 3 into 1junction lies just below the cam chain cover plate - and feeds foward into the box.
