79 SC oil drip, what is it?

Have been chasing down some minor leaks on my car and this one remains. It only drips when running but falls on exhaust so is particularly annoying. Drip coming from red circled area adjacent to right lower valve cover. Thanks guys.

Could be a rocker shaft leaking. Put some oil dye in the tank, drive it for a day or two, then inspect with a black light. It'll show up.

hi Derek
have a look here..it could be your camshaft oil line fitting to the camshaft housing seal.The oil line might look tight but to check loosen the 17mm bolt and check the fitting.
If is is all ok ,it could be your camshaft cover o ring and gasket.
