Oil leak. need help.

I have a 95 F-350 and there is a oil leak on the driver side I think its leaking around the oil cooler bit im not for sure. The bottom of the manifolds are wet with what look like oil.. Any suggestions....
Also where the steel fuel lines meet the braided line below the maifold seem to be leaking also. Does anyone know where i can get that line. Its about a foot long. I talked to ford and they told me the line is obsolete and ford no longer makes them. Has anyone else ever run into this problem.
Thanks

Keep this in mind (this is occuring in my truck) I have a leak coming from my turbo pedestal, but I have oil ALL over the bottom of my truck, on the rear diff, on the driveline, on the side of the transmission...

The fan and moving air blows oil everywhere, try steamcleaning or powerwashing your trucks under side to better determine right where its coming from.

The line you are talking about is a fuel line. Take a close look at your oil cooler condition. Mine rusted and pinholed and made a big mess. I had oil all over the exhaust manifold on that side, the steering shaft and the frame rail.
