Default Weird oil leak

86.5 D21 Z24i replaced head gasket timing tensioner got screwy so I pulled the cover R&R timing set ya d ya ya got it back assembled. Test start time comes and WTF is that oil leak between my block and timing cover? New fel-pro gaskets no warpage that can be found. Is there something to the front cover gaskets I missed? It's leaking right where the oil goes to and from the pump.

get some UV dye and pour ir in the oil. use a black light after a few hours of running the engine. the leak will be a bright neon green.

Wouldn't last hours I've watched it leaking (think 10 minutes a quart) I've got the T/C back off and nothing jumps out at me as in like a blown gasket or cracked cover or block.

leaking that much the gasket or cover is bad at the best. but check the oil pump gasket also. (we all have had one get by us)
