I have a 1992 230TE I have taken off the top cover because oil seeps out of the cover/to engine join. Changed rubber seal with a new one. Before fitting cleaned off both surfaces with methes to remove any oil. Fitted back together without any glue of any kind, but after a couple of weeks is has started again. Nothing serious in the way of flow, but leaks. Any ideas??

I would say poss a prob with the breather system remove rocker cover and clean out oil catcher,baffles etc and all pipework and try again, maybe even temporarily route rocker breather pipe into an old tin can for a week or two to see if this improves the situation.

Yes the breathing pipes from the sump being cleaned out may help
