Has the oil vapor separator been cleaned? If it's all gunked up inside the engine will push oil through the seal/s of least resistance; even new ones. For cam cover gaskets, my preference is Permatex #2, shellac based though never hardens. Some have used silicone but it's amazing how much of that crap collects on the oil pump pick-up screen. Vapor separators can be cleaned by soaking in a de-greasing agent. I use WalMart's 'Purple Power' (NFI). It's strong enough to remove paint and your hyde so rubber gloves are a must.
