Clean off your motor of all oil, gresse and crap and then refill oil and start engine and watch for leaks.
I thought I had a rear seal leak but I now believe its coming from my breather.

Mine came right down the bell housing/ shield and was the rear main seal... as stated already, clean it good and watch...
