Default Gasket replacement

Can someone help me with a part # (place to buy) a gasket (valve cover I guess)? When changing my plugs I had some oil on the driver side forward coil over plug (maybe a teaspoon of oil).
Seems it is leaking (very slowly) and getting down in there the valley with the plug and wire, I could just clean it up every once in a while but thought it might be best to replace the gasket if it wasn't that big of a deal/expense.

And thanks for those who take the time, and have taken the time in the past to offer help.

huge PIA install. local parts store has the gaskets. I would try removing any hanging areas of the rubber gasket and cleaning it with some parts cleaners and then squirt high temp rtv and work it in there with your finger. It's worth a shot for the time being. Valve cover removal is never an easy job. The gasket has an outer part and then 4 o-rings for each of the holes in the valve cover. Usually the new kit will have everything. Ran me about $40 for both sides. I did mine when I had the engine out and it's a good thing because one of them was worn just like yours.

Thanks, I was looking for the gaskets online, but none of them seemed to have the 'o' rings; so I thought I was looking at the wrong parts. I will check around for the kit...
But maybe I can stop it like you said for now. I will have to take a look at where it is coming out.
