mine started leaking after i changed the headgaskets.i changed the cam seals again after and still it did not help.i remember every time i stoped smoke would come out of the hood,and oil on the ground.The oil was always in back of the cam gears so i know it was in that area.i also tightend the cam caps and that did no good.
