Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
My '96 had the same problem. On my car, the leaks were on the vtec solenoid (spool valve) and the distributor, where the distributor meets the cam shaft. The seals on my distributor weren't serviceable, but your car doesn't have a distributor to leak. Instead, it has a cam position sensor (it's placed identically to a distributor, making it easy to locate). It's probably a simple o-ring replacement between the cam sensor and camshaft.

try removing the bolts hold on the valve cover and once you do that take a razor blade and a little lube and careful scrape the old one off.

Sounds to me like you have either forgot to put back on the breather tube that runs off of the top of the valve cover, or, you did not set your valve cover correctly, or the torque is not correct on the cover itself.
8.7ft/lbs and the torque sequence is inside to outside (torque the inner-most nut between cyl 2 & 3 first, then the one above it then alternate sides on the outside ones). Recommended Hondabond is on the corners and the cam cap areas.
