Question 103 Front Cover Leak- Where exactly?

Got oil?

Front Cover Leak:

Front cover has been leaking oil somewhat since I have had the car. Not so much, but messy nonetheless. Obviously a very common problem based upon posts...

But where exactly is the source of the leak?

In the diagram below, is the problem child #143 (Cam Gear Cover Gasket) or #142 (Cam Gear Cover Seal)

Or both for good measure? Neither? Am I even barking up the right tree?

Extra credit question:
Is part #139 (Distributor Rotor Bracket) a 'wear' item? Hate to reinstall marginal parts because replacements are not in hand...

TIA for any help.
