Thanks for the tips guys. After seeing what Noodles said the weep holes are for, I reckon that may be my problem. Had a bit of trouble getting the cam cover back on after the valve clearance check. Was a bit concerned with the seal around #1 spark plug at the time to be honest, but interestingly my weep is from under #3.
Thinking more about this, should I fit the new gasket to the top of the head first, then place the cam cover on it?
I had the gasket on the cam cover and tried carefully placing the two together on the head, which was a fair juggle and I thought at the time that there had to be a better way. But since I had already put some RTV silcone between the gasket and the cam cover, I continued on.......
