Oil Leak

I hope someone has some other ideas.... 99 F250 w/7.3.
Changed the rear crank seal (should have talked to my Ford mechanic buddy first... but a good learning experience).
Changed the HPOP lines and seals, as well as the turbo and pedestal seals (upon his advice), but do you think I can find the source of the oil that is STILL leaking?
The valley does not have lots of oil, but it is wet. Checked engine top to bottom while running and don't see any obvious leaks. I did not remove the HPOP.
Anyone have any other ideas? Please!!!!

The valley holds a lot of oil, It took mine 2 days to quit dripping from the old leak.

oil leak?

i have recently found a leak that is apparently a common one. i would have sworn that my rear main was leaking. turns out, the fuel, yes fuel, line running along the right(passenger)side of the lifter valley to the rear of the head has a metal clip holding it in place. the vibration rubs a hole in the fuel line. the fuel collects a bunch of dirt and oil on its way down and drips out between the motor and trans. my buddy (a Ford parts manager) helping me with a motor swap said he has sold a " sh#tload of these".

Ive got the same problem with mine...was trying forever to find my oil leak until I smelled the fluid and realized it was diesel Will be changing out the line sometime soon...on a positive note my mpg's should bump up a bit since I won't be leaving a trail of fuel everywhere!

I just pulled my hpop and installed all new orings, gasket on hpop and resorvoir, after first drive and letting it sit over night, I still have oil on the driveway under the truck, it doesn't appear to be as much but not sure. I wiped the valley as best I could and got most of the oil out of it when I had the hpop out. Do you think it could still be a thing with old oil running down the engine and clear up in a few days?
