Discovered that coil pack in CYL 4 was soaked in oil as well as the plug

The gasket was replaced re tightened and tested

Results: Oil still leaks onto the headshield on top of the headers.

I am stumped. Are there any other possiblities? other than the valve cover gasket? I cant physically see where it's coming from due to viewing restrictions because of the angle (even with the valve cover off)

After installation of new valve cover gasket, during testing. revving the engine and looking at where the oil leak was for the first few minutes nothing, and then this was discovered. NOTE: the oil residue on the right is OLD before the gasket was chaned but the line of oil in the middle is new.

Please any other thoughts? maybe a crack in the block?
I even put high temp NVA on the half moons.
