Oil leak

Trying to find an oil leak dripping down the bell housing. I can watch it while it is running and nothing. Shut it off and watch it for 1/2 hour and nothing. Look at it the next day, and an oil spot about the size of a coffee cup saucer has appeared. I replaced the fuel drain valve. That was leaking. I do not see enough wet in the front of the valley to think it is the HPP quick connect. Although I may be wrong. The orange boots have some grime on them and the black boots are dry. What is the best way to look at the turbo pedestal? Is there anywhere else I should look?

Look over the CAC tube on the passanger side with a flashlight....look at the base of the turbo and the base of the pedestal. Also....stick your hand back there and you should be able to feel the rod that hooks up to the EBP valve.....follow it back to the actuator that is part of the pedestal and feel around there and see if the actuator is leaking right where the rod comes out of it.....

Thanks, I'll give it a try this weekend. Does anyone have a link that will tell me what all this stuff is(CAC, EBP)?

Finally found the time to change my oil and check on the oil leak. The truck did not like the 15-40 with 0 degree temps and not plugging in. I looked in the rear of the valley. It is no more wet than the front. I did not see any oil leak around the turbo pedestal. I forgot about the ebv rod. I'll check on that next. I did find something else leaking, but don't know for sure what it is. I was under the truck on the drivers side. It looks like it is over and back from the rad hose that goes in the block. Maybe the power steering pump. It was low on fluid, so not sure.
