1987 Carrera Oil Leak

The car is a 1987 911 Carrera.

I have an oil leak from the right side cam housing. I hoped it would be the oil sender line but after I removed the AC compressor I could see the line needs to be replaced but is not the source of the leak. I'm suspicious the leak is coming from the cam shaft seal. Looks like $$$ to fix.

I'm attaching a photo. Any advice, suggestions or thoughts as how to fix this are appreciated.

I just did the this very job. It was the cam shaft O-ring.

Can be done in the car and if you're a bit handy with a spanner you can do it yourself. If you're not that handy you could either strip down ready to get the job done and tow the car or just leave it to a work shop to do it.
