The input shaft of the transmission likes it better if you disconnect it from the coupler before lowering the engine.
I think you need to do a THOROUGH cleaning with an engine degreaser, then put things back together, use a color additive to the oil, start up for a short time, stop, inspect where the leak is coming from.

On a different note, the sound pad is deteriorating, rip it out.
Be careful with that trouble light; it gets pretty hot. Don't leave it resting on any lines or cables.

Thanks for the advice. I did uncouple the shaft before I started. Could this be oil that is left over from replacing the rear main seal. When I bought the car last year the dealer had it replaced before I bought it. Its not clean oil and it seams to be just under the tin?
