Brown and black should be normal...black being all the carbon that the oil is trapping. "By the right front tire" tells me passenger wheel, right? Front main oil seal, timing cover, oil pressure sending unit, filter, and adapter housing is there.
How is your oil pressure gauge reacting?

Very well could. Main seal could have been pinched, timing cover may not have all the bolts in it or bolts are loose, causing the seal to not be quite right.
