Oil on Spark plug near cylinder 3

Still getting a random misfire, when i take out the plugs its covered in oil. I know ive seen threads before but i cant remember what gasket it would be.

Hard to change?

Just checked a video, since i have all the top stuff already off i should be able to do this in about 2 hours max. Thanks for the heads up again.

buy the valve cover kit. Most valve cover's are cracked just behind/above cylinder 3 on the intake side which puts oil right down in that area of the galley. No point in buying the gasket and bolts twice seeing as how the cover isn't sold without them.

Yeah, do everything, cover and gasket in one shot. I did my gasket, took like 7 hours, put everything together and noticed oil next day near cylinder 3, so I put some jb weld on it, still leaks through, but no misfires.
