Valve cover keeps burning..

I Have a 2013 f150 3.5 ecoboost. Valve cover keeps burning on passenger side. What is causing this? Cover looks fine from inside so it can’t be the valves.. I’m just confused. I replaced the burnt valve cover with a brand new one and same burn. Same spot. Weird. The water coolant line that runs beside it gets really hot but I don’t think it’s causing this burn.. are coolant lines supposed to get hot to touch? Thank you

It could be the coolant line that is causing the issue and yes they do get hot but there usually engine temp hot which could range from 190-215 degrees could be higher depending on load conditions to. If the valve cover isnt leaking i would put it back on and run the truck and get a temp gun to see what the temps are in that general area.
