: One possibility is that the oil leak is coming around one of the studs used to fasten the header to the head. You can remove the stud and put some high temperature sealant on it and screw it back into the head, if it is the cause.

I have seen a leaking stud at the header cause a fire . Check the stud if the valve cover is not the source. Quickly check this before you too Flambey
