Oil leaking behind harmonic balancer took pic help me out

I noticed the other day that the truck was leaking oil....so i checked it the oil was about a half quart low......now there is a pretty good amount of oil dripping on the front axle and steering components i took a pic its just behind the harmonic balancer im guessing unless its blowing out of the front oil pan! But im doubting that, could it be the hpop? Help me out here guys.

not 100% but i think there is an o-ring where it is dripping i think that it is a allen head bolt if not there should be a seal behind the harmonic balancer try replacing that hope you find out something

Why is there a bolt missing from the front drivers corner of your oil pan?

the motor shook the oil pan bolt out but.....i torqued the rest down i can guarantee that. I called my local diesel mechanic he is going to look at it this tuesday. I would try and tackle this but i don't have the time being that i work seven days a week and my diesel is an everyday driver....plus there is some other things id like to get done to the truck while there. But ill keep everyone posted.
