    hi s3syd,
    i have read somewhere that the fuel injection pump develops a problem and pressurises the engine, thus putting the rocker cover under extreme pressure and therefore leaks. check out your sump oil for deisel contamination. i hope i have not worried you too much, but it needs checking out. good luck, barney.

    hi s3syd,
    on second thoughts your crankcase breather may be partially blocked thus pressurising the sump in turn pressurising the rocker cover making it leak.
    hope that helps.good luck, barney.
