Common oil leaks

What are some of the common oil leaks for our 7.3's?
Have a leak right now, engine oil dripping off the bottom of the trans (manual) and onto the ground, stops dripping once it's not running. Haven't had a chance to investigate and figured I'd hit up the forum before trying to pinpoint it. Truck has a 130K on it.

Anybody got any ideas how to locate the cause? Thninking about shooting degreaser and pressure wash the undercarriage and as far up the bell as possible to try and find the source. Any other ideas? Thanks guyz!

You have two sets of Turbo pedistal rings. One directly under the Turbo and one directly under the pedistal between it and the block. Good places to check. Other is the hpop or its fittings. Dry the areas really well, including the valley of the engine. Turn the truck on and run it. While its running check all the hpop fittings on the heads and the hpop. You should find your leaks.
