Is the grease on the bottom of the cover just to help it slide over the rubber seal? I think I installed mine bottom first. Everything was clean and I did put sealant on the seal at the rear facing contact points.

The reason I thought it was the cam seal is because I think the oil may be coming from behind the distrubuter which means the cam seal. I will wipe it dry and take a look. Here's a photo of the installed cover.
