Already replaced the seal for the chain tensioner, immediately after the head 
was installed and the first seal leaked because I wasn't careful and let the 
seal get cock-eyed while tightening.

The other possible leakers I can think of are the vacuum pump/gasket and the 
timing case cracking at the serpentine belt tensioner mount.

I may put some newspaper or cardboard under it in the driveway and spray a 
couple cans of brake cleaner to wash off the front of the engine, that may be 
enough to locate the leak.
