bad oil leak

I have an oil leak that runs down the passenger side of the bell housing and runs off the bottom of the bell housing. Of course you can't see anything on a V8. I changed the valve cover gasket on the passenger side. Its still pouring out. I'm hoping its the oil pressure sending unit. Anything else I should check? I'm hoping its not the intake. Does the distributor have to come out to change intake gaskets?
