Oil leak 3126b

I have a troublesome oil leak that I thought was coming from somewhere near the back of the valve cover, back of the head, itís very difficult to pin point this leak for there is a big wad of wires all bundled, and I use that word loosely, right at the top back of the engine, I cut the zip ties loose and freed up the wires so I could pull them over the top of the valve cover to try and gain access to the top back of the engine, again very difficult to see back there, using a mirror and a flashlight, then a towel to look for any traces of oil, what I can see is on the passenger side a trail of oil across the motor mount and what looks like where the bell housing meets the engine a trail there but the exhaust pipe is in the way to see anything else, what could be leaking signed pulling the three hair I have left on my head out

See this video - sounds like your leak is between the block and the rear structure (about the 3:10 mark in the video).
