valve cover gasket leak

Just noticed tonite...when I first start up, there are small oil bubbles between the valve cover and the head. Once it warmed up and the oil pressure dropped to 50 PSIG it stopped.
I torqued down the bolts and still occured. I also noticed that the engine vent was drawing in air. This is the first time I ever checked it so I do not know if this is normal.

Has anyone ever noticed this ? If you corrected it, what did you do?

Thanks, Frank

The rubber valve cover gasket has shrunk. You can get a new one from Weberpower to correct the leaking.
