somebody please help?

OK, 92' lude h23a1.... new head gasket, valve cover gasket, oil cooler o ring, camshaft seals ( front and rear ), oil pressure sensor, distributor o ring, still leaking oil..... Isolated it to the back of the engine block. here's the catch.... won't leak while i'm sitting in my garage.... only when driving... drips on halfshaft and slings oil everywhere. this is not my 1st honda by any means and i'm fairly proficient but this beats me.... any ideas suggestions would be great.... P.S. was thinking oil pan gasket but how would that leak onto the driveshaft above it????? seems moist though, but can't tell if thats from all the flippin' oil everywhere....

thinking oil pan gasket because huge signs of leak on crossmember and driveshaft....losing alot of oil... being driven applies more pressure so maybe why only leaks from the pan while driving... Any feedback?

Re: somebody please help?

whats the highest point on the back of the engine block you see oil leaking?

how bout putting the car on jack stands, cleaning the back of the block, starting the engine, then "driving" it for a bit with someone underneath it looking for the leak?
