Minor Oil leak, where\'s it coming from

This is on my 304. never had this problem before so I'm not sure where it's coming from. After a day of Wheelin' at Uwharrie, I stopped off to gas up before driving home. while at the station a small puddle of oil started on the ground. I followed it up to the main pulley. inside the pulley in the front groove only was a pool of oil. black used oil. I just changed my oil Thursday, and when Ichecked my dipstick, I was fine on the level and the oil was still crystal clear. inside the pulley, was burnt old oil. further back in the pulley it was dry, the oil was only in the front of the pulley. I couldn't find any trace of oil at any point higher than that. I was thinking Front main seal, but how would it get to just that point, unless that's just what the Centifical force would just send it out to that point. front of the oil pan seemed a little more wet with oil than usual but not anymore than a typical AMC leak [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] Am I on the right trail thinkning front main seal?
