Oil Spray

My "D" has a persistant film of oil on the right hand side of the rear pot. having done all the pushrod seals etc to no avail, is it possible that i have oil coming up the rearmost headstud and spraying out under the head joint. Has anyone else had this problem, before i remove the tank and go for another head nut tighten?
