Another Oil Leak

Hi,
I'm new here, I've had 3 preludes over the past 12 years, 1992 2.0L, a 1996 Gen 5 vtec and 4th Gen vtec import.
My pride an joy has always been the 4th gen vtec, it has been off the road for nearly 2 years and I've decided it's time to put her back on the road.

The reason I took it off the road was due to a massive oil leak...turned out to be the oil cooler gasket. I finally replaced that earlier today, new coolant, new oil, new oil filter, feeling very pleased with myself I started the car....bearing in mind it hadn't been running in nearly 2 years it started on the 4th go....but....another leak! The car was on axle stands so I could clearly see the oil coming pretty fast. I had a good look around and it looked to be coming from the edge of the oil pan, but on closer inspection it may possibly be coming from a higher point.

I've done a quick search on this site and found some great suggestions but to narrow things down a bit I would be greatfull for any input. I've added 2 photos, one of the cooler with the old gasket on (just for interest) and one of the oil leak in progress with the engine turning over.
There's no white smoke, cloudy oil, cloudy coolant, so I'm pretty sure its not the head.

Thanks
wilko

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Another Oil Leak

That's not a leak... That's a Down-POUR! Is that the pulley I am seeing at the top of the screen? Could it be that the crank seal is bad?

Also, Did you replace the oil pan gasket?
