Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you today. Give me just a moment to review your post, and I'll be right back with the help you need.
The most common cause for the type of oil leak your describing if you sure its not coming from the remain seal is usually caused by a leaking intake gasket. Are you able to get a mirror back there to make sure its coming from above the bell housing?
I would try getting back there with a mirror and having a look to verify its the intake before you rip it down. If its leaking it usually at the corners where the intake meet the heads. If you need the removal steps I can post those as well. Let me know.
The should be the cam shaft sensor and synchronizer. It dose have an O ring on it as well. See the link below.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/cam%20Sensor%20Nov%2018.pdf
The O ring is actually on the synchronizer which the sensor mounts to and if your removing the synchronizer you will need the alignment tool shown in the steps .
You can just remove it and replace the O ring . You can get the tool at most tool supply store and also most auto part stores. Its a common tool.
I have always just removed the intake to get the clearance you need. It has to come up pretty high to get it complete out. You can try coming through the inner fender and see it may work. If not then plan on removing the upper intake. You are not signed up for a monthly charge so once you rate my service you will only be charged one time.
