After installing a used head from what I was told a good running engine. Car ran fine for about 15 min. Then sporadic rough idle. I thought injector issue. So ran engine with valve cover off. I saw quite amount of oil almost shooting up from #10 headbolt. Since oil looks under pressure. I don't feel it is from blow by into head bolt "hole".
Could the leak be from the cam cap. Or cam journal. Sorry. I haven't seen actual Male for the metal block that supports the cam and its bearing.
So any ideas it this is due to faulty head gasket, head bolt, or cam hardware.

I think I found the issue. There is a small cap on the rocker shaft tubes on the inside edges. There is about an half inch gap between the 2 assemblies. It looks like a 1.4 inch silver "tube" is between the 2 tubes. I think one of these popped out and is lodges between the 2 tubes. Can I use the tube - rocker assembly from the older head onto the newer head. Or do I need to purchase a new tube assembly.

Is the guy in the middle of the 2 rocker tube assembly's one of the end caps stuck there. If so. This just happened and I caught it before excessive camshaft assembly wear

This is a new forum layout with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

This has been talked about many times.
