Oi pouring out front, driver's bottom side of 95 7.3

Just fired up my truck in the driveway. fortunately, I got out to get something out of the garage. came back to see oil pouring onto the ground. Looks like it's coming from the driver's front. Going to fire it up and try to spot leak. Seems like there are oil lines on the bottom, front, driver's side. ???

well they're not that fun to do.
getting the caps to seat with the new o rings in there can be tough. i like to use a huge rubber mallet. stand it on the ground. have someone hold it straight up. then pound the caps on.
or you might be able to use a press.
also, i recall there is one mounting bolt near the front that's a bit tricky

the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least
