Question Oil Leak Origin??

I've got a 1991 Pont. Bonneville 3.8.
I've changed the front crankshaft seal. New valve cover gaskets. New oil pan gasket, not the cheap one that when you tighten too much..it squeezes out the sides. Tightened to 124 in. lbs. according to Chilton. And I'm still getting an oil leak toward the front of the oil pan. I can't tell if the oil is from the timing chain gasket cover, since the top of the oil pan is so close to the bottom of timing chain gasket. But that is the only thing left, that would leak oil in that area, right? I'd appreciated some help.

Thanks

I'd go back and drop the oil pan and recheck all the seals just to make sure nothing "happened" on reinstall.

You're right. Doesn't hurt to recheck things.
Thanks
