Oil leak from the front of motor

i know another oil leak problem but I cant tell where its coming from and I wanted to see if its a common leak. Its leaking from the very front dripping from the crankshaft pulley so I cant tell if its the pulley where it seals to the front of the engine or something above it. theres no sign of leaks when looking from the top-down. if ya got any insight id greatly appreciate it

Could be a lpop seal. There is one where the pump mounts to the timing cover and one where the shaft goes through it. Its just on the inside of it from the front

Did you ever figure your leak out? I just notice the dreaded spot on the driveway and have a leak in the "same area." I still have to clean it and take a better look but I am thinking either front crankshaft seal or hoping that it is the oil pressure regulator o-ring. From my understanding neither of the two are terrible to fix but the front crankshaft seal requires a special tool which you can improvise but have to be really careful and you have to remove the fan, where as the oil press reg o-ring is right there in the open.

Wow my bad, I must have been having a brain fart at work. Just noticed you have a 7.3.
