Oil leak

Since the engine rebuild there is a leak of oil from the oil pump primer blanking plug. The plug is new and so is the crush washer. Any thoughts?

Try a good used one instead?
That's an unusual leak, I take it you've checked that it's not running down the back of the rocker cover or something like that?
I forget now whether they use a copper washer or a fibre washer, maybe try a fibre washer if you have one handy.
