No, you can get the cam cap off with the engine in the frame. But and this is a big but, it's often an utter sh*t getting the 8mm headed bolts out at the front without snapping them off. There are 4 along the front that get crap sprayed over them from the front wheel and there's a long one on the right with a 10mm head that goes through the head and into the barrel. These bolts appear to be made of cheddar.
Might be worth getting in there with the "Gunk" and clean all the oil off, then you should be able to pinpoint where the oil is coming from.
