    Its the gasket between the engine block, and the part that the filter screws into. My engine is starting to drip oil from all directions. :mad:
    Best picture I could do, its in an odd spot.

    Oil filter o-ring. If it's spitting oil, It's double gasketed. Most likely anyway.

    If you are sure it is from the block it is your oil pump gasket

    Actually there are 2 gaskets. Gasket for “oil pump body” which is against the block and the “gasket pump cover” edit”(called that in the parts book) but consists of two o- rings” which is the one closest to the oil filter head.
    Details such as make year model and engine are always helpful when you have a question. This one was pretty straight forward though.

    There is an O ring and gasket for the oil pump to block. And as was said - it could be running down the timing cover too so I'd suggest you hit it with brake clean a bit, then run it and make sure that's where its coming from. A leak at the pump to block is a rare thing in my experience.

    As stated clean the area better. I have had the oil pump itself leak, there is an o-ring that seals the cover to body. A gasket and o-ring that seals pump to block. Clean it really good to make a proper diagnosis. Time and money well spent!

    Looking at your picture it looks like you may have the wrong oil filter, the oil filter should be larger them the pump body, just look a HWYCRZR's picture in post #5

    The only gasket between the filter and the pump is the one attached to the filter.

    Thanks for pointing that out, filter was already on the car when I got it. Never noticed. The filter isn't where it is leaking though.

    From further inspection mine seems to be seeping a small amount from the relief valve, and I think also from around the smaller seal shown in the last picture. Above that is dry, and it appears dry behind it. How hard is it to get apart? Looks straightforward, but I have been wrong before.

    Clean it first to make sure that is where it is leaking. If you are taking it all the way apart Make sure you get the gasket and o-ring on the block side and the two sealing o-rings on the pump cap and if your releaf is leaking the sealing ring on that as shown in @MrMoparCHP post above.
    A field service manual would have the correct procedure and the bolt torques for when you put it back together.
    It is an amazing book.

    @HWYCRZR has it right. Get an FSM. It is a pretty straightforward job.
