oil leak at top of engine

This is a 103....at the top of the engine there is a place where two vaccuum lines go into the engine..

it seems like that fitting is weeping oil.... is there an o-ring or gasket that goes there..

I am having trouble locating anything related to this.

Those fittings are part of the valve cover.

Look at your oil fill cap. If suspect, toss the cheap plastic stock cap and get a real metal one. I know, it sounds weird, but it solved two messy 300e's.
