1.8TS Oil in spark plug holes

Investigating recent misfire, I removed coil packs to check plugs etc and discovered No.4 cylinder (flywheel end) spark plug holes half full of oil. I cleaned them out and checked plugs which were ok. My question is; where has the oil come from? It is the opposite end from the filler and, besides, the oil is not new (not clean). I can only assume it must be leaking from the cam cover. I looked on elearn and it advises to replace the gasket when refitting the cover. I had the cambelt replaced a few months ago and wonder whether the cover was not refitted properly. What type of gasket is it? Anyone know the part no.?

Its a "rubber" type casket - probably either not refitted properly or damaged when the belt was done.

Part number is 60655592 - but it appears to be a ludicrous 40 or so from Alfa.....worth checking to see if the cover has been tightened down properly and the rubber properly positioned.
