lay up on the motor, with a flashllight. Shine it in the valley, behind the hpop. If its puddled behind it, the hpop is leaking, probably the "non" serviceable plug, which can be serviced. If no puddle, look then with light, toward the back, where turbo and pedestal is. If puddles there, then more than likely, either the o-rings on the pedestal / turbo are bad, or the EBPV rod, that protrudes from pedestal to outlet of exhaust, is leaking..(most common place).
Order up the "cabinet" kit from diesel orings or riffraffdiesel, and replace them all. While its tore down, remove the fuel bowl and rebuild that too.
