Question Small hole in front cylinder head

Hi, what is this small hole? When the engine is hot, there is dripping oil out of it.
It is at front of the front cylinder head, below the BREATHER JOINT (Ref#92005) (Part#14067-006)

That is the wheel hole for your front deep well spark plug.
if oil is leaking from it, you have a bad oring. It's an easy fox. Your rear axle nut should fit it & it just spins out. Replace oring & reinstall.
