There are several spots where oil could leak on the front side. I would guess that the cam seal would be the least likely tho. You will need to clean the engine off enough to see where the leak is originating. A can of engine bright, carb or brake cleaner and $5.00 in quarters at a car wash should do the trick. When you have it clean and dry, try puffing a little flour over the suspected area. Oil shows up great against the white flour.



My guess is that the front cover gasket is leaking. But it could also be the oil filter seal, oil drain plug, tach seal, or clutch cover gasket or seal.
