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.

If it is leaking that much, the oil will have washed a clean pathway below whatever is leaking. If it is the front mail seal, there will be a clean oily path below with dirt stuck in the oil around the "river" where it is washed clean.
