When refitting the dizzie, there should be an O-ring at the interface where it clamps to the cylinder-head. If this is missing or damaged, you will have a permanent oil-leak when the engine is running. It's 30mm diameter(from memory) and 3mm thick.

I have just gone through a similar experience with the French bank Credit Agricole , and a false Paypal payment. Somebody masquerading as Paypal demanded 600€ from my bank account, and they paid it! Fortunately I spotted it the same day, and was able to prove that there was no such transaction on my...
I think this one has been forsale on the FB page as well. I pointed out the error in the engine capacity, and the seller replied, confirming it should read 2994cc. So it's an Essex, presumably.
