Coat the exposed side of the cork gasket with wheel bearing grease. I don't know why it works but I have done this it works. This assumes that your chrome valve cover isn't warped.

Subject: [Healeys] Leak from rocker/valve cover

Hi all, 
Six months ago I replaced the OE rocker/valve cover with one of the chrome type. I used a new cork gasket, which was fixed to the cover using some gasket sealant. I did not use any gasket sealant between the cork gasket and the head.

Today I noticed oil leaking from the rear, right-hand side between the cover and the head. Any ideas on how to get a oil tight seal between the gasket and the head?
