I am brand new to this forum and this is my first diesel. Please excuse my ignorance. I'm not new to wrenching I have restored several cars and trucks. I have plenty of experience with gasoline engines just never owned a diesel powered vehicle before. Thanks in advance for your help and patience. I have a 2007 F350 6.0 Turbo 4x4 (dually) that literally vomits oil from the top rear of engine right at the back of the "valley" passenger side. I'm in the process of pulling the turbo off after removing the obstacles. I am sure things will be more clear once I can get a visual. I removed the fender liner and was able to see the oil pouring out from the area under the down pipe from the turbo. I've included a couple of pics (pardon the cobwebs.....truck has been stored in a barn) The down pipe clamp is seen in the photos and it appears the oil is leaking from the "plate" below? Please, any help would be much appreciated.

Check all those plugs on the rail for a loose one.

If you mean it is leaking from where the green arrow is pointing in the pic below then that means it's leaking from the HPOP cover. Generally a new gasket o-ring and a line of black RTV along the rear engine cover to just past where it overlaps with the engine itself is sufficient. If that confuses you, you will understand once you have it off. There is a cover on the back of the engine which bolts on. That cover usually doesn't align perfectly with the valley, leaving a slight height discrepancy. The gasket doesn't seem to like that and leaks at that point a lot.
