Oil Leak in X.

Started noticing oil in the driveway last week. Figured it was Joe's rear Dif that was leaking. Then started it up Monday and it sprayed oily water from the exhaust.
Crawled under it and yes it was leaking. Opened the hood and looked in the valley and there was a puddle of oil. So I assume I have a turbo leak. I ordered a Wicked Wheel and it came with the new O rings. Figured since I was already in there I might as well get the WW now.
My questions are....Why is it leaking? Any suggestions to make the install go easier? And also....How long is it going to take me to pull it and install the WW and put it back together? Doing it myself...so allow time for trial and error. :Thumbup:
Thanks

The oil is coming down the back and down over the torque converter cover underneath. What do I do if it's the HPOP? Thanks Mike, I hope it goes well.

If the oil is in the front of the enginge valley it's the hpop o-rings. If its coming from the rear and the front is dry its the turbo pedistal o - ring.
Since you have the ww to install do it by removing the turbo, that way you can replace the o rings and eliminate them as being the culprit. Joe won't help? :

Joe will help, but he is more of a...how do I say this nicely.....Move over and let me do it! kind of guy.
So I have limited his involvement in this to pointing and limited moments of groaning and complaining that I'm doing it too slow and all wrong! All kidding aside he will be doing a lot of talking, walking me through it. But he is NOT allowed to help unless I ask, I want to do it all.

IF it ends up being the turbo pedestal O-rings, and since you are pulling the turbo anyway, this should help you out. http://thefourwheelerpage.com/diesel...l_o_rings.html

I DID IT!!!!!!!!!! And I did it ALL BY MYSELF! Joe didn't lift a wrench the whole time. I swear!
The directions that came with the WW said "3-9 hours depending on level of experience and ability." All I cared about was getting done in UNDER 9 hours. I didn't want to be the retard who couldn't get it done! It took me right at 6 hours. I was very happy. I went off the directions and all was fine.
Thanks to Joe, for trusting me. :thanks:

Runs great! I was just praying it would start up. And it did!
No more leaking and a little more get up and go on the bottom end. Couldn't ask for much more.
