How do you know the cam tower seal to the cylinder heads are leaking?

You would have to know exactly where to look, clean all the oil and dirt off and lay under the car looking up at the right areas while hot air is blowing down on you with the engine running for a while until you see new oil leaking out to determine that, and that said do you know how to tell by looking if it's a rocker shaft leaking oil or the cam tower seal? It can be decieving.

It could be a common rocker shaft oil leak or even a valve cover gasket leaking. Air currents under the car move oil sweat and seepage all over the place on the bottom edge of the cam towers while driving.

If you remove the scavenge pump and air pump pulley you can see the end of the driver side cam.
If it's been reground or it's a custom grind there are usually numbers and a date stamped or engraved on the end of the cam and you should be able to see it with a flashlight.
For example: if you see the number 40 on the end and a date that it was ground, thats Webcams 964 profile.
