Possibly could be from the oil cooler

It could be from the oil cooler or the High Pressure Oil Rail End Plug (there is one on each end of each cylinder head ... so 4 total for an engine). They are common leakers.

Oil Rail End Plugs (large plugs at each end of heads; incl. O-rings, use LOCTITE #11747 to seal threads)
(Ford) Same number as International
(International) 1827535C94

In the 7.3 section there is a thread of common leak points. I'd read up.
