 I had a Fiat Spyder DOHC engine that leaked oil from one cam seal.  
Couldn't get it stopped until I realized the oil was going around the 
seal, not through it.  Gasket cement around a new seal cured the problem.

  I put Speedi-Sleeves on both ends of the crank in my MGB engine.  The 
rear seal leaks and the front doesn't.  Doesn't leak a lot but I'll find 
a small puddle under it when the car is parked for an extended time. 
Another leak source is the filter adapter seal.  Have you isolated it?
