Front cover leak 103

How much oil would you typically lose through the front cover leak area.

I am still having oil issues with my 103 3.0 on the 300ce.... i have replaced the valve stem seals...but i am thinking this might be a culprit, too..

the front cover is clean from the front side... but when i put my finger behind it... it is very oily..also oily below it...

i have that pesky little gasket...and can do the job when the weather gets better..

i had just expected to see oil in the area where the cover meets the head gasket.

car continues to run perfectly.
