has new gasket but it seems as if the bottom side closest to trans is leaking out of corner ? maybe they didn't clean surfaces good enough! any advice helps just seeking help thanks

To fix that you're going to have to remove the tappet cover, which requires removing the VP44.

 

From what I've seen, it's usually not a dirty surface that causes a leak, but rather a slight bend in the tappet cover. That slight bend won't keep enough pressure on the gasket and allow oil to seep by.

I just ran into the same problem with my tappet cover. The only way we could get it to seal up properly is using some RTV gasket maker with the new gasket. Luckily the guy that did my engine swap for me "took responsiblity" for the leaky cover. He got it all fixed up for me. I think he used the "right stuff gasket maker". I have a couple thousand miles on it now and all is dry.
