Oil pan or Rear main ???

So my truck has been leaving puddles everywhere i parked for a couple days now, i creeped under to find out it is coming from the seep holes under my bellhousing on my 6 speed .... now is there a way i can tell if its the back of the oil pan leaking or the rear main ??? I have heard the oil pan gasket can be done by loosening the engine mounts ... anyone did their pan like that ???

I would check your HPO lines in the engine valley first or the turbo pedestal o-rings. Most oil leaks on the 7.3 originate up top and drain out the hole in the back of the block and make it look like a rear main.

Look in the valley like dhanna said but use a flash light and look towards the rear of the valley under the turbo. You may have to lay under the truck on the drivers side and look up at the back of the engine. If you see oil back there I would put money on pedestal o-rings or your EBPV rod/actuator whatever the hell the technical name for that POS is.

Ok i will have a look tonight but is it possible for the oil to get in to the bellhousing from the top and the leak out from the seep holes at the bottom ?

Yes that's what they're saying. It can leak anywhere in the valley and get in the top and weep out the bottom.

Perfectly said, haha.
Might be nice to lightly rinse the engine and tranny top and bottom, and find the leak, a nice fresh leak are easy to find, rather than a cruded up engine vally and tranny.

If it is coming from the top and running down and it leaks bad enough, it can get on the clutch and cause it to slip.
