Help Direct Me In The Right Direction

Thought I would start a new thread rather than tag onto my one of my others...

Some of you might know.. I just bought my truck last week, & have done alot of basic maintenance on it to get it up to my standards..

My problem now is a decent sized oil leak..
At 1st I believed it to be the dip stick leak.. But was able to crawl under there today, & it is pretty clean & dry all the way around it.. But the symptoms pointed to that leak.. Oil all over the back of the pan & bell housing..
I am in no means looking for a perfect truck.. Especially with over 300k miles on it.. But this leak I'm sure will not let me have piece of mind between oil changes, & will very quickly have my wife yelling to park in the street!!

I did check the valley & all looks fine there.. Leak if definately on the passenger side of the truck.. So.. HPOP o'rings?

I will be cleaning up the bay a little this evening, & probably de-greasing this weekend to get a better idea.. But would appreciate being pointed in the right direction!!

I would do what matt suggests with the plug in the back of the head. there are oil rail plugs in in each end of the head - i don't think they are brass - they seal with an o-ring eventually these o-rings fail.

OK, so I had some time to root around in there yesterday..
Checking the valley... Dry as could be.. I actually had to vacuum some type of nest out of there.. looked like a birds nest, but was made of stuff I would normally associate with mice/rats.. Truck must have sat at some point.. Who knows.. But anyway.. DRY

From underneath, the dipstick tube "nut" the holds on the threaded "deal"(sorry.. blue collar here!!) Anyway, the nut was completely backed off & handing off the dipstick.. So I was thinking BINGO!!! Now we're cooking with peanut oil.. but no dice.. Looked to be dry as could be surrounding it as well..
But I do have an oil leak on that side.. it is coating my starter, & making a mess of about everything..

As far as the driver side goes.. Ran out of time to really tear into it like I did the passenger side.. As much as I am leaking.. I couldnt see the head being the source for either side..
Thoughts?

HPOP rail plug. Fix that **** now or you'll be hurting something fierce later. When it finally goes it will dump all your oil in a minute. Look at the front of your heads for a large 1" plug. Looks like a big washer with a square drive or hex key to remove it. It's on the front and back of each head the head.
