Sprung an oil leak (with picture)

I've recently sprung an oil leak, but I'm having a hard time tracking it down. There's no oil pooled in the valley, and the oil cooler is completely dry. I can't really tell if it's coming from the pedistal, as it's running down the side of the block near the oil filter and collecting as a drop on the drain bolt? It almost looks like it's originating from the top of the bell housing. Do you think it could be somewhere in the pedistal? I don't have a CCV mod, and everything on the top side of the turbo looks dry. Sorry for the bad pic, but that's the best I was able to manage. That's the location of the leak on the block (driver's side).



Any help would be great. Thanks a ton.

No, it's dry up top and the turbo area looks dry from the top as well.

probably not hpop then, Could be pedestal but you would probably have a little wetness under it. I think if it was coming from the valley area (hpop pedestal area) it would be more on the passenger side.

I'm wondering if it would be a good time to put a non-ebpv pedistal and outlet on just for 'good measure.'

x2 definately pedestal o-rings. Yes and get the non ebpv pedestal its a super nice unit and gets rid of the leaking ebpv assembly. Got mine from clay at riffraff diesel and couldnt be happier. Also if you wanted to save money you could just gut the butterfly valve out of the stock output and reuse it.

Looks more like a diesel leak to me. Check the hard lines that go up the motor to the fuel bowl. Mine rusted out at the bottom of the motor and were producing a similar leak

might be the plug on the back of the head. Cheap and easy to start with. I just did mine too.
