78 caprice small block(oil leak)

There is a bad oil leak, and i am having a really hard time finding the cause of the leak. Its coming from something on the side of the engine closest to the firewall. I'm just wondering if there is a common problem w/ this car. If anyone has info on this that would help alot.

Does it just leak with the engine running, as in a steady drip? The oil pressure sender is at the top of the rear of the block on the drivers side by the distributor. It could have sprung a leak.
