Oil Leak Drivers Side ??

So I have a 1996 F350 7.3l.

I am having an oil leak that appears to be coming from the drivers side on the engine bay, since it is kind of all over I cannot tell exactly where it is coming from. Does anyone have any ideas of what would leak from that side? I think it could possibly coming from the headgasket or it looks like there is an oil line over on that side that it could be coming from.

When I return home today I can post more info on it and maybe take a few pictures.

Thanks in advance.

If it is leaking alot at cold start and then gets a bit lighter as you drive then its the o rings in the oil cooler. Pretty easy fix just 100 for parts at the ford house ( dealer only item). Took me about 45 mind from start to finish. Have a crowbar handy to put it all back together
