i reckon either dodgy cam cover seal dizzy seal or head gasket, theres 3 oilways at the front of the engine, could be goin there

or the worst case senario the crank oil seal has gone sending oil up the fly/clutch and spraying all over the inside of the bell housing, but then you would notice oil coming from everywhere around the gbox

is it running down from the hole in the side of the head?, where there is like a spark plug reservoir with a drain hole the gearbox side. and running down the side by the sensor and onto the gearbox,

then it could be ur rocker cover gasket gone.
take a lead out and look in there to see if there is any oil sat there,

I had a bad rubber o-ring in the dizzy a while ago that caused a leak but the oil was messier then what you describe and all over the parts under the dizzy. Just a suggestion.

How about a pic with the oil in it. That way might help pin point the problem?
