Porsche Crest Engine Troubles

I seem to have a small oil leak from my 84' 944 and was wondering if anyone could tell me what would be causing this. I have tried to trace it and I think it might be coming from the head. Im not sure though. The car still runs great though and it doesnt seem to effect the performance. It has about 65000 km on the engine.
Any ideas at all, please reply I need some help

It's probably that stinkin rear cam cover gasket. Mine leaks pretty bad, only leak on the whole car.

No reason. why? Is this a new rule? No one said anything about any new rules. I can't handle any more ^%&$@%^$^&@ rules!

Nice manicure, Uncle Wilk.

on the cam cover there is a small oil channel and the cam box gasket is split by this hole, leaving the gasket with a thin edge to hold back all that oil pressure. I saw this as i changed out to a wide fire ring gasket, as i had a leak around the rear exhaust side of the cam box, thinking it was the rear cam cover gasket. when i took off the old gasket i paid close attention to where this leak could come from, since it had a fresh overhaul and new gasket. i found that the gasket was actually wrinkled up and shifted by the oil pressure. i should have trimmed the gasket to fit the oil channel, but i left it alone and sprayed all surfaces with copper gasket and bonded all surfaces very good.no leaks.oh and the rear cam gasket was not the problem.
