I have a C7 the timing cover casket lower section leaking figured it was the main seal. To find it wipe it down take a paper towel and duck tape it around the suspected area. Go for a drive 30 min .. Casket 45 bucks labour 3-4 hours works perfectly

My guess is that your rig doesn't have a rear radiator? Took more than 4 hours just to get to the timing cover.

Also, something I learned the hard way. It is important to use an installer tool when installing a new main seal. The seal is inset (not flush) with the motor. It will not ride in the correct location of the damper and will leak if just tapped in flush. Seconded time around I spent $90 for an installer tool to install a $25 seal. No more leak.
