Nutha oil leak

What up everyone, first time post'n, 1 month lurk'n. Plainly put, sites' awesome.

Got an issue, from read'n the threads/post, after my purchase, to do "preventative" maintanence, i ordered the hpx, frx, "cabinet" kit of o-rings....etc. Before install'n rebuilding of things (float bowl), had the puddled oil in valley, but no leaks anywhere, as far as showing up on the driveway. After install of the hpx and frx, had a leak, tweeked around yesterday, and found driver-side hpx leak'n, tightened ur up, after cleaning the "valley" and dowsing with water, and from there, drove about 60miles home. Pulled into driveway, no leak from hpx, but now, gotta huge puddle from what looks like a "plug"/flathead notch plug, directly in front of starter, or i guess, behind it, its off the bell housing...(see pic).

Today, i'm pull'n the spider, install'n the riffraff plenums, new t-clamps EVERYWHERE, and also, cleaning up everything and tightening all down.

So from the pic, and which i'd greatly appreciate, if anyone throw me a bone, as to what you think could be wrong.......99.5 6spd

Take'n anutha gander at things i've installed, the frx is not leaking, but found the hpx passenger side fitting, leaking, this was after about 20min of idling, just now, so tightened it up, let it idle more, and think its "cured. But still had some seepage from that plug. Put flathead head to it, think'n its loose, but doesnt twist, just aslight in/out movement, with truck runn'n...?
