94 IDI rebody

Hello, I just had a 94 four door long bed F350 7.3 IDI 4X4 given to me. The engine runs good but leaks oil like crazy when running. It seems to be running down the passenger side of the motor. I'm going to cut the frame down and and put the body from my 71 standard cab longbed F100 on the chassis and I would like to fix as many problems as I can while the bodys off. The chassis all seems in good shape just needing the wear parts replaced. The oil problem the main issue right now. It may even be the trans front seal or engine rear main. There's so much oil under the truck and running on the ground it's hard to tell whats going on. The engine seems like it has good oil pressure. I know the power steering hoses leak and that doesn't help. Are oil leaks like this an issue? Could it be comming from the head? I own a hot rod shop messing with big gas motors for the most part. I am building a 72 F100 race truck and want to tow it with my 71. Any ideas would be nice. Thanks Dave
