Can you see the leak while the engine is running? If it has some pressure too it then I would think the cam oil lines/ tensioner lines would be the culprit. Its best to clean up all the oil, let it run, and trace the oil up the engine to the highest point.

If it is more of a drip, then remove the valve cover and see if there is any oil in the area's its not supposed to be in (can leak through the rockers, and you can use some RSR seals to take care of it)

If thats fine, then it could be where the chain boxes meet to the cam towers. this will take a whole lot more work to fix so try everthing else first Let us know. Pics always help!
