i bet the manifold is loose or you do indeed have a valve cover leak
interesting true story;....i once worked on a bb with the same problem and the issue was very bad valve seals and guides. when i pulled the intake, the heat plenum under the intake must have drained a half quart of oil!....obviously the intake gaskets were stock with no heat restrictors and all the extra oil in the manifold along with no exhaust gaskets at the manifolds and slightly loose manifold bolts made oil leak from that area you are talking about
this may not be your issue but i thought i would share fwiw......
