Bill, with all the leaks you have, the case might not be leaking, it just might appear to be. The front leak might be the crankshaft seal, or t'stat, or oil pressure sensor leaking. A leak from the front top will travel right down the middle seam of the case.

The rear seal could be the pulley side crankshaft seal (repairable), or the nose bearing (not repairable w/o splitting case). I would suggest fixing all seals you can w/o splitting the case. You might have a few weeks worth of work with seal replacement, but with splitting the case, you're getting into months. Once you split the case, the cost will go up signifiacntly, as you truly might as well do a full rebuild.

Glad to see you bought the best year 911 ever made!!!
