I just changed my spark plugs on my Connie.  I've owned her for about a year now.  The #2 plug hole has some oil accumulation on it and # 3 plug hole had a LOT of oil around it.  I don't appear to be burning oil and there's no oil drips off the engine.  I suspect it's a leaking valve gasket, but thought I'd ask the group.  It's hard to see much and I'd rather not start pulling valve covers, etc without feedback.  Thanks

  You may need gaskets for the sparkplug holes. I never reuse the old rubber gaskets. Look here for the gaskets.

Yup. As mettler says. These should be changed every valve adjustment.
