tilted motor and tranny--oil out flywheel cover?

Ok. chevy 350, th400 tranny. pulled them out together today and had to tilt it quite a bit with tranny tail down. (i should have drained fluids) anyway, when i got the motor and tranny on my shop floor a handful of motor oil leaked out of my flywheel cover. Can someone school me on why this happened. I know its because of the tilting ,, but details.. thanks.

Ok i was wrong after cleaning motor, installing new VC gaskets, i tilted motor again, and now with the flywheel cover off i can see oil coming out of rear main.. keep in mind it is very tilted and i would never drive my car at this angle but its leaking alot..meaning lots of drips at normal angle. should the rear main leak at such an extreme angle or is mine just shot.? standing by for answer .. wrenches in hand to pull tranny. thank.s
