You can order a new gasket from a vendor (cheap & easy) or make your own by tracing the old gasket on a sheet of thin aluminum or even copper (the same or slightly thinner than original, thinner increases compression). If you've kept on top of the head bolt torque (lol) then that's not the only problem - you may have a slightly warped head, also a pretty easy fix
Thanks for the reply
The oil is leaking from top of head where the spark plug connects into
Just confirming the bottom gasket on head is the base gasket
And top gasket is head gasket??

Thanks for your help
