Could be the valve cover gasket if there is oil up high or the oil return hose that comes from the turbo

Is it possible to remove the rocker arm shaft in the head without touching the timing so I can re torque the head back down ??

Yes but both the head bolts and rocker bolts are torque to yield bolts and designed as one time use. When you say right side do you mean the right side as you are looking at the engine/transmission from the front? Can you post a photo of the area you are talking about?

Thought I’d kill this off fitted the BKD metal inlet with metal gasket sorted my leak on the front,

And other oil leak was intact the head gasket failing :(
