suggestion

take a weekend and tighten up the loose ends. make sure your valve covers arent the problem and your oil pan isnt cracked.

Until you figure out where exactly it's leaking from, you're going to have a hard time getting anyone to pinpoint how to fix it.

Oil leak

Funny thing is when I got mine it leaked oil too. The guy i bought it from said it needed new gaskets. I ended up just taking some time checking bolts here and there and it ended up being the valve cover blots being lose. Tightened them right up and the leak stopped. Just check around to make sure everything is good, check for cracks too, check hoses, pretty much check everything that would have oil passing threw it. Good Luck

Good man. At least you are one of the smarter ones.
