Default Spark plug tube seal #3 leaking

Got a problem with the #3 plug tube getting oil leaking into it. The motor is a D15B7 in a '95 Civic LX. I replaced all 4 of the seals and the valve cover gasket. Cover went back on evenly. Do Civic valve covers ever develop a slight warp that could cause this? If so, where's the best place to get a used one? I snugged all 4 acorn nuts evenly when I put it back together. The mating surfaces on the valve train were smooth and clean.
