Exclamation Cant find my oil leak. help please.

I have a nasty oil leak. Ok, bought truck with snapped dana 60 housing. long story. front x member was stuck in pan. with the help of a come a long and a few torches, fixed that problem. bolts are tight in pan, and has thick bead of rtv on the front seal. leaks about 2 qts every week, well not lately since injector o rings went. i changed the 2 plugs for the oil rail. pretty tight, seals were dry, and dont look like they have had oil on them. There was some dry oily mess on the front of the engine. cant find the oil leak. all my lines are tight and it doesnt look like the hpop is leaking. any ideas? i just cant figure it out. and i need to drain the block of coolant. already used the pet**** on radiator and pulled bottom hose, just want to make sure all is out. is there a drain plug on the block for coolant. Thanks.

Look for the oil that is fresh running. It will look like it is washing it clean.
