Help identifying the oil leak

Car in question is an '91 965 Turbo and the leak is coming from 2 locations:

1)- Where the bell housing joins the engine (?) but not sure what this area is called,
crank shaft seal ?

2)- Oil line (?) running from the turbo side to the other ?

Thanks

Look for a leak on top of the motor around the thermostat housing and also the oil pressure switch near the breather hose...and the breather hose also.

I would agree with HelmetHead, and would also speculate that it is the engine seal for the transmission..

maybe you can tell by the color of the oil if it's from the motor or the gearbox.

I have a carrera intake on my engine so it may be different than yours. Replacing the thermostat seal and oil sender involved removing the intercooler and charge pipe to throttle body..about an hour total. Might take longer if you have CIS.
