Cheap fix or so I thought.....

I have recent problems with an oil leak on the lower part of the cam cover and immediate thoughts suggested gasket but its fairly new so looked at the alloy top which had a crack in it...JB Weld suggested and seems to have done the job, sealed and dry as it should be! Thinking I had fixed the problem, think I have the same problem as forum member jurdy as I have a streak of oil off the lower part of the plastic bit underneath the rocker cover but not on the outer part of the timing belt cover but on the bit where it 'joins' on the lower end.
Can someone confirm that its either balance or cam seals. I revealed the top part of the cover and couldn't see any oil around the belts so am I awaiting an inevitable gush?
Belts, tensioners , variator and water pump all done oct 11 so not gonna get good value out of those!
Frustrating when you think you have diagnosed and solved to no avail.
