oil leak-pls help

After I got tired of cleaning oil off of my oil tank from my leaky rocker box cover.....I decided to change the gasket. Turns out the threads were stripped where the majority of the leaking was coming from. Put a helo coil in it, tightened it all up and thought I was done.....NOT! I still have a slight leak from that bolt...is that normal after using a helo coil or can I fix it? When I drilled out the old threads, I used grease...I think the excess grease has made its way out, because this looks like clean oil. Thanks

if it's leaking from under the head it might be the fiber washer under the bolt. i've seen those leak often.

I've never touched an Ultima engine but HDs use a small fiber gasket under the rocker box bolts. I always replace them because they're cheap. Could you need some of these?
