[DML] oil leak in valley-o-death (was first week of ownership blues (crankshaft seal))



 I just finished installing the new crank seal and pulley.  I topped 
off the oil and gave it a spin.  The engine sounds great.. however when 
I ran to the back of the car, there was a steady stream of oil, like 
seeing lava move down a mountain comming from the 'valley of death' 
region down the 'rear' of the engine (pulley side).  

My question is.. not knowing what I'll find when I get down there, is 
there something legitimate that could be causing the leak? a line, 
gasket/seal or something.  Or is it very likely that I have a hole in 
the engine?  

I think I may have been taken a bit on the car.  Its all oil(water) 
under the car(bridge) now I suppose.   There is still lots of blue 
substance in the oil.  I'm guessing maybe the liquid gasket theory may 
still yet apply in the valley somewhere.  

Sometimes I wish I could have been a bicycle enthusiast, or perhaps a 
avid stamp collector...
