03 CR oil leak

Looking for info, installed an 03 Cr in my 03 F250, engine had 130k very minor oil leaks at rocker cover I replaced rocker cover and valve cover gaskets before i installed the engine, I used 5w40 shell rotella synthetic, I drove it 300 miles, and oil is coming through the injector plug up front,it apears to be coming right through around the wires, any thought or direction on repairing this problem would be great, Thanks in advance for any help.
