Are you sure its not coming out of the cork valley cover gaskit under the back of the inlet manifold? This can be common.
.............ahh, the old to cork or not to cork debate. No cork for me thanks - just a big fat gaskit sealer bead.
Get a rag and some parts cleaner and really clean the area. The best way to fix it is remove the manifold (too hard basket), just try a bead of gaskit sealer smeared over the gap and let it dry overnight. The oil will make it very reluctant to seal though.
