Thanks! I really don't want to pull the head to fix such a minor leak. Is it possible to do this without pulling it? Which bolt has the copper/rubber seal?

there is a retangular plate held in place by 6 10mm bolts. It's at the top of the head next to the firewall. Difficult to see so use your hands. In addition to a gasket one and only one of the bolts has a copper and rubber seal. If it's leaking oil replacing seal around this bolt may solve your problem. Getting that bolt out and back in can be difficult with the head on the engine due to firewall clearance.
