Most likely it's the sealer on that side of the oil pump that has broken down . Pull the oil pump off and reseal it with some RTV sealant.Permatex gray if you can find it . You will have to replace the seal under the oil pump and also the crank seal
Note : check the screws on the back of the oil pump they tend to loosen over time , a dab of locktite wouldn't hurt

Here is alink to an oil seal I found at advance auto. Is this the one I am going to need to replace? How hard is it? What kind of task is it to get the key out so the timing gear slide off? Should I worry about throwing the time off by just replacing the pump seal? How do I take tension off the belt?

I just hope it works. She started right up and purrs like the 232K miles frisky kitten she is. I will be taking her out for a spin tommorow to see what flys off and if it leaks. Wish me luck.
