"Did you put a high volume/ high pressure oil pump in it. I've heard of them leaking out of the rear main seal because of this but I don't know maybe it could leak out of the front as well. The truck looks great.  "

"Check the seal for the balancer in the timing cover, sounds like bad seal or bad fit with balancer, i would wipe it down and check to see if there is oil on or around it, a little more investigating, good Luck"

Hi Alex, Do you have oil vents in you valve covers? If you dont, you will have to have some to vent the crank case. At speed your engine is building pressure in the crank case and forcing oil out the crank seal. If your valve covers dont have filters, you can ourchase them from Jegs or Summit. Easy fix. I had the same problem once with custom valve covers that had no way to vent the pressure. Hope that helps......Smitty
