I saw many times the fact that the oil leaking is only at high speed or high rpm. There is pressure issue?? Or only block groove.???

There are potential pressure issues in the entire engine if something isn't as it should be.
But the one groove tappet blocks are still in use and not causing problems as long as they are not blocked.

That could cause some sealing issues I reckon, supposing that this is actually the source. I saw you mention that you replaced the upper and lower seal with one from a hardware store. Did you also replace the middle seal?

Ok, well I don't have one as new as yours so maybe they changed that at some point. I was pretty sure that the corks I replaced were all the same.
