Oil leak from timing cover?

http://i1254.photobucket.com/albums/hh605/forwheeler/20180726_181033.jpg

Is this the timing cover gasket? Do you think it can be tightened a little to prevent the leaking or needs to be replaced?

Last night I remounted the arm bracket on the suspension so the ball joint is on the top of the arm instead of the bottom so it makes a 7 or about 90 degree turn.

I should also say that in this position the headlights will move up and down without the car moving. It is as if the computer is confused by the sensor position.
