Still Leaking Oil By Flywheel Cover

Okay so for a minute now my car has been leaking oil by the flywheel cover and I suspected it was the rear main seal as a lot of people would think in this case, I was planning on dropping my tranny and put a new clutch in anyways so **** it lets fix this issue while I'm there anyways, so I replace the seal and throw everything back together to find that my car is still leaking oil by the flywheel now I'm suspecting that it is my oil pan gasket, so today I dropped my oil pan bought a felpro gasket from autozone and put it on with some rtv gasket seal and threw it on the ****en thing is still leaking what the hell could be leaking at this point? and I know it's not the seal cause that ****en thing was a super tight fit and it was snug no damn way oil is getting through that thing

Sounds like the leak is somewhere else an is running down the engine and just happens to be dropping from where the flywheel housing is. Your going to need to look for another source above that point.

Other places to look: valve cover, distributor, cam seal.

Everything above what you just said is dry and clear of any oil any possibility it could be the rear main gaskets?

Edit: Turns out it was the Rear Main Seal when I put it in it wasn't put in all the way so the flywheel scrapped it and damaged the new one.
