oil leak

my wife was driving my truck when it suddenly developed a major leak. everyone out here says its the rear main yet ive never seen one just pouring it out of the rear main seal. It is coming out of the drainholes in the bellhousing about 6 inches from where transmission bolts too the motor. it doesnt leak when just idling but after reving or driving it will pour out. please assist if you have been here

Check around your HPOP pump and follow the valleys with a flashlite. 99.9% it is coming somewhere from the top end and leaking down the tranny housing.

I'm betting it's your hpop as well.. check the lines coming out of it with a flashlight, you'll see the oil pouring out if that's what it is.
