e99 oil leak

Hi new to this forum, I own a early 99 f250. I have been taking down and fixing a couple oil leaks. The last one has me confused.
Oil is leaking down the back of the block and dripping down the inspection cover, about one drop per seven seconds while running. The back of the valley is dry. Any ideas? Thanks

I pulled the flywheel inspection cover and the oil is coming from the passenger side of the block but more towards the center. Could the lower pedestal o rings leak like this without getting a bunch of oil in the valley?

Yup that or the EBPV could be leaking. The drain is in the back corner of the block.

Did you stick your hand or something all the way back an come up with no oil? Your hand should fit behind the turbo.
Oil rail plugs can also leak, as can the valve covers. Take the downpipe off and you'll get a real good view of both on the passenger side

Yeah I can see the drain in the valley. Ebpv is not leaking and back of head is dry. As much oil is leaking the valley would be very wet in back and its not. looks wet around starter also.
