94 powerstroke 135,000 mi. oil leak

Got back from church revival lastnight and didnt notice it till this morning had about a hand size amount of oil underneath, plus it had that spashing look like it was up high,, but looked and looked like it had been leaking from the back of the oil pan.. Now i dont know for sure but thats whati looked to see when i glasted under really quick,., now could it be anything else but the rear main??? im sure hoping thats not what it is,, i use to maybe get a drip over night but seems to got worse over night, its oil for sure

check your turbo pedestal o rings, the oil leaks down and makes it look like its the rear main

if it is coming from back there, its probably not the rear main seal, a more common one is the seal plate

UPDATE,, the valley under the bowl had fuel i would say sitting there,, i just had thought it was oil under truck cause i didnt think it smelled like diesel. Well cleaned the valley up pretty good and started it and waited for a second and shut it down.. The valley showed fuel right under the bowl, i looked at the 2 houses which are cracked but could not see them leaking,, unless its at the fitting that looks to go up underneath the bowl.. I didnt run just for couple min and in that time it dripped under truck as well.,, So ok what do i do take bowl off and look into it more?? would you go ahead and replace orings or order the oring kit? and replace the two fuel lines?? what do you all think?? thanks

You should find the leak and then fix it. Dont start chasing it. Check your fuel vaccum switch, mine was leaking when I got my truck. Also the fuel filter oring.
