Default oil in spark plug holes (93 Civic DX)

I just pulled the wires for my spark plugs and found oil in 2 of them. Is this leaking from the head? It looks like a new (or newer) head was put on it recently. I'm thinking maybe they didn't put all the seals back in correctly. Also what ft/lbs do I need to torque the head bolts to if I take the head off? I haven't got a service manual yet.

Is there some magic formula I need to put in my posts to get a reply? I'm not a very good mechanic, but willing to learn.

Well it appears I have fixed the problem. I got a valve cover gasket set ($31 at Advance) and installed the gasket. the set came with new grommets to keep oil out of the spark plug wells. It was a simple fix. 4 bolts to get the valve cover off. Be sure to clean out the place where the grommets go, and get the grommets to seat all the way. Just thought I would wrap this thread up in case others run into the same problem.
