So I have a 96 Ef Falcon I have major oil leak issues, recently the sump gasket front seal an back seal were replaced along with the harmonic balancer seal timing cover seals an gaskets, but it still continues to leak from somewhere around the right hand side of the block nearing the sump but looks like it is possibly leaking from somewhere near the alternator bolt at the bottom any ideas

It's not leaking from the timing chain tensioner behind the pwr str support bracket?

pressure wash/degrease the block and get underneath it in a few days to have a look to see where the leak is coming from
