Aren't there oil lines that run from the HPOP and thread in somewhere in the middle? I'm going from memory so I could be wrong. Might be worth a look.

Check the oil lines going from the HPOP to the oil rail and also the IPR.

Ipr?ebpv? All of the low points on the drivers side of the valley have oil in them.nothing under the pedestal and nothing under the hpop.the passenger side of the valley is dry.The leak must be new because it is not filling the valley to get to the drain, yet.When the pedestal was leaking it was wet on the passenger side and draining out the hole.The front by the hpop was also dry.

Are you sure it is oil and not fuel? A lot of people think it is oil until they reach down and touch it.

I am not doubting you, just making sure you check.
