oil leak cant find problime?

My truck is leaking oil a small ammount everyday about the size of a quater. I looked at the 2 lines on the hpop and cant quite tell if its coming from the 3rd line on the hpop. is there an easy way to tell if its leaking from the pedistal or anywhere else.

with any leak the key is to clean the area and watch/wait for the leak to come back.
Brake cleaner or engine degreaser should do it.

I would just go on and change out the 3 O-rings on the hpop and see how it works from there. It's the best bet for the leak and when I tried the "watch and see" method one blew out and pumped all the oil out of my truck 80 miles from home. I went from "I think I smell oil" to a dry sump and dead truck in less then a mile. $290 tow bill and 3 little O-rings, good as new. I was told I needed special tools to pull the lines but on mine all I needed was a 9/16" and a 5/8" wrench.

Nothing stock left on her and not a nut, bolt, hose, or wire on there that I didn't put where it is.
