Rear main or oil pan?? What's more common to leak?

So I have a pretty good drip coming from the back of the block before I remove the inspection cover , just wanted to ask ... What's more common to leak?

Oil pan gasket or rear main?

Check for a leak in the valley. Leaks there will run down the back of the block.

The EVPV on the turbo pedestal is a common place for a leak.

Like was said. Check the valley and back of heads. The rear main almost never leaks on these.

The pan uses SPECIAL RTV to seal it, not a gasket

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

Or the inspection cover has worn a hole in the back of the sump....
