e450 oil leak 7.3

2000 e450 7.3 oil leak, thought it was passenger side valve cover gasket, changed it and is again leaking, it is wet around the passenger side exhaust manifold just under ther valve cover , driver's side is as dry as brand new, any ideas?

thanks

You can thank the engineers who don't have to work on them for that!Is the valve cover making a good seal?

re

i think so, it seems like it may be coming from the front of the head and just running across the bottom of the valve cover

My guess is no, but anything is possible. Take a look its in the 10 oclock postion in front on the passenger side you will see the wiring plug. Its behind the front crankshaft pully. See if its wet from oil
