Question Help!!! Large oil leak, and no start!!!!

First off she's a 06' F250 6.0L CC 110K stock. It has had a small oil leak for quite some time from upper right rear of the block. Within the last few weeks I noticed the leak becoming larger (4" dia spots). Ok it on my s*!t to do list. Well it didnt make it that far. On my way home from work took a soft right and engine died. I pulled off and cranked it a bit and nothing, so I got out and saw a large pool of oil that only starts pouring when cranking. Got it home and looked at it this morning cranked it a bit and no oil leak can be produced. This is where im at. Oil is full, no oil in the top valley, fully charged batteries, good crank speed, and got codes P2291, and P2617. Im really leaning a high pressure oil leak but what would be leaking on the back side with that quanity of oil? Any help would be great and thanks for your time!!!!!!!!!!

You said on the upper right rear. That's a very objectional direction.
Driver or pass side? The ICP sensor is also on the VC. Not sure which one. But it's back there too.

Having the same type of problem right now..... amungst the other 6.0 issues that all seem to hit at the same time!! Only 80K on the truck. Can't wait to hear some input on this.

Was your oil dripping down the RR side of your block and onto the trans line? My oil levels are fine, but I'm blowing some smoke.

Well I tore it down yesterday and as I thought I had a bad STC fitting. I also saw the rear cover is broken from the fitting blowing and slaming into the cover. Not really what i wanted to see but it is what it is. I will post pics and keep updating as I get the trans out, part pricing, ect.

Where is the STC fitting? Can't wait to see your pics to find out if that's what I'm facing as well.
