help needed for massive oil leak

I really need help I was hauling a 5th wheel today at hihgway speed with my 2000 F250 (118000 miles) when I noticed smoke. I stopped right away and looked at oil pressure before shutting down and it was ok. After i investigated I found a large puddle of oil under the bell housing . I started the truck and oil started to pour out of it I shut it down and was about 5 qts low. Does any body have a different idea other than a rear main seal?

Check the valley between the heads.

Might have blown a HPOP line, or turbo/pedistal o-rings.

ill all but garantee the lines on the HP oil pump are leaking....actually its the o rings that seal the fittings that the lines snap into

Look just to the drivers side of the fuel filter and ill bet you see oil has been coming out of one of the two lines, and you may even see part of the o ring hanging out of the base of the fitting

the o rings get dry and brittle with heat cycles and can not hold back the up to 3000 psi they are required to seal. The oil then goes into the valley, drains out of the drain hole in the back of the valley on the right side.....then the oil goes down the head and into the bellhousing and onto the starter
