OIL LEAK HELP

So it thought I blew my hpop o rings out again because I found oil towards the front of the valley. But after checking the fittings they appeared to be bone dry, so now I am lost as to what the problem could be. The oil mostly drips on the starter side of the engine down the oil pan. I need some help from you guys who have had similar problems. Anything would be great, thanks.

So, I decided im going to have to pull the turbo off to check for all posibilities back there. Looks like this saturday Im going to have a little project going on. Hopefully I can get it apart relatively easy with no problems, knock on wood, lol. Will feed you guys in with anything I find and if anyone has some tips as to what to look for it would be greatly appreciated!!

Well I never got to pull the turbo because it rained over the weekend I was going to do it... so I got out of school early tonight and came home and decided to check the truck out. I cleaned the valley so it was spotless of oil so I could see if the oil up there was old or not, and come to find out tonight a puddle has formed again right behind the HPOP. Are there any cases where the pump itself leaks rather then the pressure lines? Because to me the pressure lines and end plug look dry with no residue. I am just starting to get confused at this point as to what the problem could be.

if its by the hpop then its an oring. Get a flashlight and a mirror and check the plug that faces the cab of the motor and the plug underneath the so called non servicable plug. With the truck running you should be able to see oil leaking out somewhere from one of those places. Mine was from the plug itself.

\Here is a pdf i found for ya.

There is also a gasket where the HPOP mates to the block. Maybe you should get the complete gasket set from dieselorings.com and just replace everything while you've got it off.
